Saad Subahi Class

The Subahi Class cutters are operated by the Kuwaiti Coast Guard since 2004. Each vessel is equipped with two Wärtsilä waterjets LJ65E. (photo courtesy of OCEA)

Waterjets represent the most successful and efficient method of propulsion for high-speed applications. In addition to greater efficiency, the advantages include also lower vessel resistance. The absence of any parts below the waterline also makes waterjets an excellent solution for shallow water operation.
