United Engineering Services’s P38 Fast Interceptor Boats successfully complete customer sea trials acceptance

Undertaken between a prestigious Middle East Navy and UES LLC off the coast of Oman, the week-long trials included maneuvering tests at various speeds, maximum speed, endurance, acceleration and handling tests applicable to interdiction, board and search and high speed pursuit missions.

The P38 is a high performance interceptor craft designed for interdiction of hostile vessels in coastal and offshore waters. It is an open boat well-suited for boarding, beaching and interdiction operations. It features advanced deep V step design hull which is 3D infused with advanced composite materials in epoxy resin for optimum power to weight ratio and maximum strength. The hull form and design affords maximum comfort for this type of craft allowing the crew to operate effectively with minimum fatigue. The P38 is designed to accommodate up to 12 crew and is equipped for missions of 12 to 24 hours.


The P38 can be fitted to meet customised mission requirements, such as triple 50 caliber machine gun mounts. To protect your crew, ballistic NIJ Level lll extended height paneling can be installed into the sides of the cockpit.

A navy spokesman noted, “We are very pleased with the success of this project, the performance of the boats meet our challenging in-theatre demands in all contracted operating envelope parameters and UES have worked closely with our project team at all stages to ensure the success of the project.”

Commenting on the success of the acceptance trials, Usama Barwani, Managing Director, UES LLC, said “Following the entry of UES into the advanced composite specialist engineering market place and bringing this technology to Oman in only a little over a year, it is particularly satisfying to have secured this important milestone with this overseas customer who were determined to procure the best performance boats in the region. They have been consistently very clear what their operational demands are and our in-depth design capability fully complemented by our world-class manufacturing process have delivered a special operations integrated maritime platform that is truly fit-for-purpose. With this success behind us we are now pursuing a number of requirements seeking interceptors that demand a world-class product offering a very high speed, maximum operating envelope performance with minimum crew fatigue platform that provides tangible savings in its whole life cost of operation”.

He further went on to say, “UES remains committed to being at the forefront of engineering excellence and the entry into this market is fully in line with our business growth plan in offering both advanced composites engineering skills and positioning the company in the defence and security market place.”
