Damen Stan Patrols 5509 for the Guardia di Finanza, Italian law enforcement agency

Together with its Italian partner yard Cantiere Navale Vittoria S.p.a., Damen Shipyards are building two Stan Patrols 5509 to the Italian Guardia di Finanza. This Italian law enforcement agency, deals with financial crime, smuggling illegal Immigration and narco traffic and maintains a fleet of about 250 vessels.

The contract, resulting from a European tender, may be considered quite a unique event, says Frank de Lange, sales director North, West and South Europe at Damen Shipyards Gorinchem. Guardia di Finanza, after a long and careful assessment, has chosen the proposal of the team Damen Shipyards/Cantiere navale Vittoria,

The 5509 is the latest model of a series Stan Patrols that remains highly in demand, and the largest to be built so far. The two vessels are built in Italy from a so called ‘Damen Technical Cooperation Package', by using a pre-fabricated shipbuilding kit.
