BMT and Nautic Star have announced a teaming agreement to offer the M80 Interceptor Next Generation Sea Boat to the Government of Australia. The agreement was announced today at the Pacific International Maritime Exhibition in Sydney with South Australian Premier, the Honourable Steven Marshall.
The M80 Interceptor Sea Boat, a sovereign navy interceptor capability, has been fine-tuned over many years to optimise the balance between soft riding, rough water performance in any direction and equally impressive calm water performance.
“BMT is excited to team up with a great South Australian company in Nautic Star to offer the M80 Interceptor vessel,” BMT Defence and Security Australia Managing Director, Peter Behrendt said.
“Nautic Star has already supplied sea boats to the Australian Border Force, proving that local firms can offer world leading capability for Australia’s defence and national security requirements,” Mr Behrendt said.
“In addition to Australia, the M80 Interceptor Sea Boat is ready for international export, including to our key defence allies,” he said.
“BMT is fully committed to developing Australia’s defence and national security capability, export capacity, national security, fiscal and broader policy and as well developing a skilled workforce as a national asset,” Mr Behrendt said.
The M80 Interceptor is a 7.3m vessel suitable for a number of maritime requirements including the Royal Australian Navy Armidale Class Patrol Boats.
