A new level of response

Two 9.5 metre police patrol vessels were named after two current Royal PNG Constabulary assistant commissioners.

PPV Manning and PPV Duwang have been dedicated by Commissioner Gari Baki to assistant commissioners David Manning and Tony Duwang.

The vessels are fitted with the latest Garmin navigational systems, safety and towing equipment including fire pumps and first aid supplies including defibrillators.

Both vessels are powered by twin Yamaha 250hp 4 stroke outboard engines, capable of top speed in excess of 40 knots with a fuel capacity of 700 litres.

Commissioner Baki says the new vessels provide the RPNGC with a level of response not previously possible with the existing fleet.

They will greatly increase the capability for the RPNGC for APEC and beyond.
