The signing of this new contract took place in January and after a few months of initial design and project planing, Rodman is now in the construction stage of the first units. These days the initial stage of the lamination process for the first unit has been successfully completed.

The execution period is 36 months for all the units, 16 months for the first vessel and the remaining 2 will be delivered with a 10 month interval between each of them.


The new Rodman 111 units will be offshore patrol vessel, designed for sea patrolling, smuggling repression, interception, searching, physical presence and surveillance for the compliance of national and international laws. All these tasks will be carried out with the utmost respect for the comfort and safety of the ten-person crew.


This new and important order reinforces Rodman’s experience, know-how and knowledge in the design and construction of large length patrol vessels, consolidating the relationship and trust of the Spanish Tax Agency in this Rodman 111 model, after the delivery, two years ago, of the Rodman 138, a 43 m. length Offshore Patrol Vessel, the largest unit built in Glass fibre Reinforced Polyester, to date.
