Last week, the Philippines and France inked a new defense pact in a boost for bilateral cooperation.

Philippine Defense Secretary Voltaire Gazmin and French Ambassador to the Philippines Thierry Mathou signed the agreement at a ceremony at the Department of National Defense in Camp Aguinaldo on May 11. Both sides had been negotiating the defense pact since 2014.

According to a statement by the French Embassy in Manila, the cooperation agreement provides an overall framework to develop relations between the defense agencies and armed forces of the two countries as well as to promote defense collaboration relating to defense equipment, logistics and the defense industry.

When Will the Philippines Get Its New French Vessels?
A closer look at a deal that is set to be realized soon.

< Edited >

This particular project, which was formalized with a contract signing between the Department of Transportation and French shipbuilder OCEA in September 2014, was expected to see the Philippines receive five vessels – one 82-meter Offshore Patrol Vessel (OPV) and four 24-meter Fast Control Boats (FPB). It also includes five-year preventive maintenance, spare parts for five years, and technical assistance and training for the crew.

The project has continued to move along under new Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, who took office in June 2016. For instance, in April, Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade visited the OCEA shipyard in Sables d’Olonne, France to inspect the four 24-meter fast patrol boats.

On September 6, Department of Transportation Undersecretary for Maritime Affairs Felipe Judan and OCEA’s director of maritime safety and security, Fabrice Weinbach, signed the contract effectiveness agreement for the acquisition of the vessels. The signing was witnessed by Secretary Arthur Tugade and French Embassy representative Laurent Estrade.

One of our community members forwarded this Twitter post from France showing one of the OCEA FPB72 Mk.II 24-meter patrol boats heading for the Philippine Coast Guard. The boat is named BRP Boracay (2401) based on the markings on the hull.

The Philippine Coast Guard is tp receive 4 such boats and an 84 meter Offshore Patrol Vessel from OCEA, which are funded by a development loan from France diverted by the Aquino administration from a failed RORO port project under former Pres. Arroyo's Strong Nautical Highway project.

since lead ship (2401) is named BRP Boracay, it is safe to assumed that this will be called Boracay-class
we are expecting 3 more of the 24-meters plus 1 x 84-meter... so its timely for another naming game..
here's my guess trying to remember our best beaches ... 

>> BRP Camiguin
>> BRP Panglao
>> BRP Samal Island
>> BRP El Nido
>> BRP Balisin
>> BRP Misibis
>> BRP Batanes
>> BRP Siargao

This versatile and competitive 24 m type OCEA FPB 72 MKII is based on the model already operated by the Surinam Coast Guard (2 units) and Nigerian Navy (7 units) and adapted to meet the operational requirements of the Philippine Coast Guards.

She is designed to ensure typical Coast Guard missions such as:
    Coast Patrol of Territorial and Economic Zone Waters
    Surveillance and Coast Guard operations
    Fishing surveillance operations
    Smuggling, fight against illegal immigration and fishing activities
    Search and rescue operations
    Natural disaster management
    Control of vessels at sea

The Fourth Fast Patrol Boat type OCEA FPB 72 MKII “KALANGGAMAN” touches the sea of the Atlantic Ocean for the first time on the August 13th.

The two last OCEA Fast Patrol Boat FPB 72 MKII for the Philippines Coast Guards were loaded onto the cargo going to Subic on October 16, 2018.

Following the arrival in Manila of the two first FPB 72 MKII "BORACAY" and "PANGLAO", it was a great emotion for the OCEA teams to load the two last "OCEA FPB 72 MKII" in order they join the Philippines Coast Guards fleet.

The training of the crews of the "BORACAY" and "PANGLAO" are already achieved, and the two first OCEA FPB 72 MKII are officially commissioned on the 15th October 2018 in presence of the Secretary of Department of Transportation Arthur P. TUGADE and the Secretary of Department of Finance Carlos G. DOMINGUEZ III.

The construction of the OPV 270, Offshore Patrol Vessel of 84 m for the Philippines Coat Guards is still under construction at OCEA shipyard for a delivery in August 2019.

We will inform you of the arrival of the "Malamawi" and "Kalanggaman" soon.

Philippines-France Defense Ties in Focus With New Patrol Boats | The Diplomat - December 08, 2018
Quote
This week, the deal was in the headlines again as two FPBs arrived and were commissioned to the PCG. The sea vessels BRP Malamawi (FPB 2403) and BRP Kalanggaman (FB 2404) arrived at Subic Port on Thursday, and were commissioned to the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG). This followed the two other FPBs BRP Boracay (FPB 2401) and BRP Panglao (FPB 2402), which had arrived in October.

The arrival of the two vessels this week completes the delivery of the initial four FPBs of its type that the deal had outlined. Philippine officials have said the boats, which will be jointly operated by the PCG and the Bureau of Customs, will begin to be used for a range of purposes, including countering smuggling and piracy.

As for the 82-meter OPV, per the Philippine News Agency, the PCG has also said that it will be scheduled for delivery in August 2019. Assuming that the deadline is met, it would effectively represent the completion of the initial iteration of the Philippine Ports and Coast Guard Capability Development Project.
