      Not if the tender has not already gone out. The lead time can be up to two years before a decision is made.

        The NSR will be getting ONE launch approx 60 feet. I t will cost approx euro 800,000. The Army want this figure cut back. The specs are still not decided. Mod could you now please close this thread as the above is how it is.

            Have the tenders gone out???????????????????? Has it been anounced in the public domain, that the Navy will acquire a 60 ft vessel ?
            Why would you suggest that the MOD should close the thread?

              The Naval Service is still technically a section of the Army. FOCNS answers to the COS. In the final analysis the COS still has to ok Naval spending, including 60 ft boats for the sluggies which still haven't gone out to tender in accordance with European Union rules.

                For one so learned the ignorance of the facts amazes me

                There is nothing technical about it...its fact the naval service is under command of the COS ...look at the break down of the command structure and the fact that the FOCNS is junior in rank to the COS

                Same applies for the air corps

                they are all under the same chain of command

                • vessel for NSR?



                  This is a State-owned fishery protection vessel that's about 60 feet long and won't be doing anything until next May. It's the 'Cosantóir Bradán', owned by the Central Fisheries Board, currently in Malahide Marina. (The CFB has another similar vessel, the 'Bradán Beatha', also laid up for the winter.)

                  Maybe the NS could come to an arrangement with the CFB, to have the use of one or both of these vessels until the salmon season starts again next May? Looks like a suitable vessel for the NSR. And perhaps by then the new launch will have been bought.

                  • And what would the point of that exercise be?


                    Catch-22 says they have a right to do anything we can't stop them from doing.

                      • The NZ Maritime Police Unit and the NZ Customs Service will be introducing their new inshore and harbour patrol vessels over the next 12 months. Locally built by Q-West Ship Building the contract for the four vessels was NZ$12 million. The first of four vessels ordered so far, the Deodar III will be in service in Auckland this summer. The vessels have a base cost of NZ $2.8 million and are a twin-hulled aluminium craft of 18.5m, 32 tonne design and have an intercept speed of 25 knots. They will be powered by twin 810 kw deisel engines using Hamilton jet thrust units rather than propellors. This is expected to give it a high degree of manoeuvrability. Each of the vessels has a hydraulic ramp on the stern to retrieve the vessels 4.5m rigid-hulled inflatable (RIB).


                        The new NZ Maritime Police and NZ Customs Service patrol vessels.


                        The first vessel due for launch next month will be the Deodar III.


                        Another CGI of the Deodar (rear view showing the RIB)

                        I understand that a tender is been currently considered for the NSR harbour and inshore patrol role. I wonder if a similar vessel to this might be considered.

                        • Looks good. Certainly should be considered. MAybe get the company to contact the DoD and see how this could be done.

                            Part of the bonus criteria for the FOCNS was to maintain and increase the sea man hours

                            (person hours if you wish)

                            so for all you Sailors - if you had to do a few days more at sea from your family

                            at least you know that it was all in a good cause.
                            Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
                            Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
                            The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
                            The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
                            The best lack all conviction, while the worst
                            Are full of passionate intensity.

                              Could be built locally in Cork. A new 55ft vessel is about to be launched.
