OK then.
They are FB MIL-50's (Fabio Buzzi Design).
They are powered by 3 x 1000hp Seatek engines giving a topspeed of "over 70".
They have Trimax Surface Drive props with 2-speed gearboxes and, undeneath the boat, are FB Design built-in trim tabs.
The hulls are composite Kevlar, foam filled, making the external hull surface impregnable to marine growth.
These boats are in use by the Royal Marines and one of them developed an engine fault and they had to call in at Alderney for repairs.

A couple more piccies.

And why would filling the hull with foam make them impervious to barnacles???

Ok, probably a stupid question, but does the two speed gearbox mean Forward and reverse, or does it have 2 forward gears?

I assume the its the kevlar composite that makes it impervious to barnacles, not the foam?

btw. Must be somthing badly wrong with the engines... look at the guy sat above the engine.
