Patrol boat 'Formentor' (P-82) Coat of Arms

For further information on the ship’s characteristics, see the webpage of her sister ship ‘Toralla’ (P-81).

Originally designed for fishing control missions, the “Toralla”-class boats are now mainly used for maritime surveillance tasks within territorial waters. Their design enables the ships to be modified for purposes outside main missions such as transport and infiltration of Special Operations units, and also cooperation with other State departments with responsibilities in the maritime domain.

The home port of the patrol boat “Formentor” (P-82) is Cartagena Naval Base where other Fleet and Maritime Action units are stationed. It is the largest Spanish Navy base in the Mediterranean.

The ship has two semi-rigid craft on board used as an auxiliary support unit. The ship has no offensive weapons and only the necessary arms to repel unexpected threats: a machine-gun and a different array of handguns and rifles.

This light patrol boat (P-82) is the second and last of her series. She was built in Barcelona and delivered to the Spanish Navy in 1989. The ship was named after a cape in the north-eastern coast of Majorca.

The crew consists of 12 men and women: 1 officer, 2 non-commissioned officers, 2 leading seamen and 7 ratings.

We regularly carry out maritime surveillance patrols in the eastern coast of Spain. We also collaborate in different military exercises controlling the navigation during the exercises in question.

Some of her main missions were the integration in the JESENBAL Group; joint exercises with Navy and Army Special Operations units and collaboration in the submarine rescue exercise “Bold Monarch” to ensure the safety of navigation in the area.
