The Royal Thai Navy has begun sea trials of its three latest Thai built coastal-patrol boats in Sattahip.

Chatchai Thataworn, Naval Director of Thonburi Harbor, oversaw the Sept. 17 testing of boats 995, 996 and 999. Engines, speed and stability were all assessed. The vessels are slated to go into service in Sattahip once sea trials are complete.

He said the boats are the latest in a series of vessels first launched in 1968 following HM the King’s inspection of similar ships in Germany.
