The CG 41 is the latest addition to KERSHIP’s family of coastal and off-shore patrol vessels. As its name implies, the CG 41 is a 41m long vessel specially designed to perform Coast Guard missions. As declared by KERSHIP, “the CG 41 is KERSHIP’s answer to coast guard missions and law enforcement operations with increased versatility, outstanding performance, excellent seakeeping behaviour and competitive price.”
To conduct coast guard and law enforcement missions, the CG 41 can quickly launch and recover two 6.5m intervention RHIBs installed on davits.
