This paper presents the development of a coastal patrol interceptor concept. The vessel is based on a high-speed trimaran platform, with an aluminium hull and composite superstructure. The outriggers provide improved stability in high sea states over a conventional planing hull. It will provide coastal patrol for fishery protection and anti-piracy in the Gulf of Guinea. Several coastal patrol interceptors would operate from ports along the coast to maximise operational range. The vessel exterior has an aggressive and sleek geometric design language, inspired by stealth aircraft and vessels. This gives the vessel a specific visual presence in the field of operation to help communicate its function.
