The Libyan government has reportedly ordered 50 rigid-hulled inflatable boats (RHIBS) from French company Sillinger.
According to a report from Tripoli Post, Sillinger marketing director Guillaume Godde declined to reveal the value of the contract but said his company has been contracted to supply semi-rigid inflatable boats ranging between 3.80 metres and 12 meters in length to the Libyan armed forces. The boats are to be delivered in March of this year.
One model will be the 1200 RIB UM Inboard (pictured), designed for the high seas, and capable of carrying up to 25 people. Libya is the second customer for this new model.
