The first FPB 70 is taking shape now at Circa.
Like the preceding 16 FPBs, the 70 begins life as a series of cut plates.
These become sub assemblies, like the watertight bulkhead below.
The FPB 70 hull shape is the most efficient we have drawn to date. It is fast, has a very soft uphill ride, and promises the best surfing of any FPB.
It is also massively strong, in excess of what would be considered ice class in the impact areas forward.

There are lots of details to come. Stay tuned.
