UNUSUAL OPV DESIGNS FROM LEROUX & LOTZ

The RAIS BARGACH is the first of four 64m offshore patrol vessels being built by Leroux & Lotz for the Marine Royal Morocaine. The vessel is not armed as the main visions envisaged include surveillance of the Exclusive Economic Zone, search and rescue, pollution control and ocean salvage. The deep-vee hull is built of mild steel with an aluminium superstructure, and to ensure simplicity of construction it has comparatively high volume.
