In order to meet a market of small units intended for the armed forces, SOCARENAM has created its SOCARENAM Côte d’Opale’s site. It has developed a range of aluminum hull boats from 10 to 20m, tailor-made to meet missions assigned to them. These launches are designed to carry a few people on daily missions in port or coastal environments.


SOCARENAM can therefore offer vessels based on the following models or designed specifically for specific missions.
