The LRV-17 uses Arovex®, a carbon fiber nano-composite system (carbon fiber reinforced plastic enhanced with carbon nanotubes or CFRP-CNT), to reduce structural weight.
The LRV-17 is an advanced Long Range Vessel designed for fuel efficiency and rough sea stabilization with a range of 1500 nautical miles and a sprint speed over 40 knots.
The first boats are being purchased by Global Maritime Security Solutions in Dubai, to police piracy.
