The first four ‘Metal Sharks’ to substitute the Super Rhibs are at the Naval base in Parera

Coast Guard_new boatsWILLEMSTAD - The first four 'Metal Sharks' to replace the Super-RHIBs were launched this morning at the Naval Base in Parera. After the registration and inspection process, the future crew will follow a driver course that will take about two weeks to complete.

After this, the Metal Sharks will be fully deployed to carry out the coast guard duties. Later in the year, the support centers of Aruba and St. Maarten will each receive four Metal Sharks.
