Coat of Arms "VIGÍA" (P-73)

The “Vigía” is the third unit of the “Serviola”-class oceanic patrol vessels. The “Vigía” (P-73) was built by NAVANTIA (former Bazán) in Ferrol and delivered to the Spanish Navy on March 23rd 1993.

Since then, the ship has carried out many missions including maritime surveillance, fishing control, participation in national and multinational exercises (NEOTAPON, MAJESTIC EAGLE, LINKED SEAS, etc), escort of other ships, and collaboration with other State agencies engaged in constabulary and maritime rescue tasks.

The oceanic patrol boat “Vigía” was designed for deployments during extended periods at sea, even in rough weather. She has a flight deck for medium-sized helicopters, a 6-bed sick bay and two RHIBs (rigid hulled/inflatable boat).
