Borduna Family, Brazilian solutions to river patrols

The Kuarup construction shipyard base is a 100% Brazilian company that added the vast experience in composites materials industry to the tradition of the  FISHING brand, with more than 2000 vessels produced to launch the  “BORDUNA” family, formed by 8 vessels from 21 to 38 feet derived from the dedicated line of civil products for open sea sport fishing, an operating environment in which the product robustness and reliability are a need and not only a concept.

The duality of civil/military applications ensures the continuity of programs, training and maintenance.

 The efficient engineering solutions are characteristic from the entire “BORDUNA” family, as well as the wide range of accessories and supporting equipment enabled to meet missions as: Patrol, “SAR”, Enforcement, Combat, Dive, Logistic Support, Interdiction and Special Operations, whether at sea or river environments.

The secure and comfortable navigation, at any weather condition, together with the operation simplicity, preserve the physical and mental conditions of the crew, thus allowing the focus on the mission and the increase of the force and deterrence capacities.

 The classroom training or digital platforms programs for development of human resources ensure the continuous operation and the maintenance of the correct doctrine for the application of the vessel.
