The spectacular vessel promises to make surveillance of our coasts easier.
The safety of the Spanish coastsdestination of organizations dedicated to the trafficking of illegal substances, go up a stepgiven that an unprecedented boat has been presented in the country: the so-called AISTER HS60. Thanks to this vessel, recently presented in the port of Algeciras, it seems that the exceptional work of the Civil Guard may be substantially improved by a marine vehicle from which no one will be able to escape. The sea has a new hero, although it will not be able to prevent the extinction of marine animals or that the little ones must use sleeves and vests to bathe.
Drug trafficking will be more complicated thanks to the AISTER HS60
Moaña and Algeciras have something in common, although they represent two almost opposite poles. Thanks to the publication of the Government Sub-delegation in Cádiz on Facebook, we have learned that the AISTER company’s first interceptor model It has already reached Mediterranean waters. It was in the Vigo estuary where the first tests of a unit that will begin to be operational under the charge of SEMAR, the Maritime Service of the Civil Guard.
