The two ‘Malaspina’-class hydrographic ships are stationed in ‘La Carraca’ Military shipyards (Cádiz).

The ships have no vehicles of their own but can embark light vans or sedan-type cars for specific campaigns. They have weapons for self-defense like MG machine-guns, rifles and guns.

They are also armed with two 20 mm mountings.

The Hydrographic flotilla is under the direct command of the Director of the Hydrographic Institute, a Navy Captain.

A standard crew of a ‘Malaspina’-class ship consists of 69 people: 11 officers, 13 NCOs and 45 leading semen and ratings.
