Patrol Boat "MEDAS" (P-26)

Welcome to the “Anaga”-class patrol boats website. The original series consisted of ten vessels specially designed for coastal surveillance, fisheries control and search and rescue in case of incidents at sea. The patrol boats are named after different Spanish islands or small isles and were built by Bazán (now Navantia) in its shipyards of San Fernando (Cádiz).

The “Medas”, sixth of its class, was launched in October 1980 and commissioned on December 10th 1980. The ship received the battle ensign in Barcelona in 1993, and as of July 2012, she is stationed in the port of Cádiz.

The boat is named after the Medas Islands off the coast Costa Brava in north-eastern Spain.

The ship's hulls are made of naval steel (Martin Siemens) and the superstructures of aluminum. Their endurance is of 12 days at 10 knots with a maximum speed of 15 knots. The ships are fitted to enable them to conduct light cargo transfers, towing other vessels and vertical replenishment with helicopters, among other capabilities.

The crew consists of 27 people: 4 officers, 4 NCOs and 19 leading seamen and ratings.
