“Excellent Relationship” Sees Rapid Patrol Boat Construction

The unprecedented speed at which Austal’s Armed Forces of Malta (AFM) inshore patrol craft contract is being completed was revealed during an official visit from the AFM’s project team-leader this week. Lieutenant Colonel Martin Sammut visited Austal’s Western Australian facilities to inspect the progress of the four vessels, which are on track for delivery in November – just nine months after the contract was signed. Lt Col Sammut said the AFM was very pleased what they witnessed during the visit.
