These craft were 71’ 8” loa, 19’ 5” wide and drew 6’ 1” dry. Weight, depending on load, was from 50-64 tons. They were the first RN fast patrol boats to be fitted with diesel engines using two Napier Deltic diesels, (actually locomotive engines) delivering 5000shp and giving the craft a speed of 47knots. They were fitted out in various ways as MTBs, MGBs, or minelayers and were produced for several foreign navies as well as the RN.
