The Italian Embassy in Libya said the vessel was delivered to Tripoli’s naval base on 21 October. This was a Corrubia-class patrol boat as used by the Guardia di Finanza. It (658) is now called Fezzan after the southwestern region of Libya. A second Corrubia class vessel is expected in a month’s time.

Some two dozen Corrubia class vessels were built for Italy. They are manufactured from composite materials, have a length of 27 metres, width of 7 metres and displacement of 94 tons. Top speed is 80 km/h and range 700 miles. Standard weapons fit is a 30 mm cannon and three 12.7/7.62 mm machineguns, but the vessel delivered to Libya has not yet had armament fitted. A small rigid-hulled inflatable boat can be launched from the stern.

 In August, Italy’s parliament approved the donation of 12 patrol vessels to Libya to enhance its Coast Guard in dealing with the migrant crisis. The donation includes ten refurbished ex-Italian Coast Guard (Guardia Costiera) 500-class patrol boats and two Corrubia-class patrol boats decommissioned from the Italian Customs Police (Guardia di Finanza) fleet. The vessels will be operated by the Libyan Coast Guard and the Ministry of Interior.
