Swedish Patrol boat 2000 HMS Munter
Photographed in Gothenburg on 3 June 2006 during a Swedish Armed Forces display.
On February 4 1993, the Swedish Coastal Artillery Force took delivery of the patrol boat, HMS Tapper, from Djupviks Varv. This was the first of the type 80 patrol boat, in a series of 12 units, ordered in 1990.
Plans had existed earlier to replace the older patrol boats in service with new instead of modernising. The alternatives for FMV were either to construct "in-house" or to buy an existing product. At the same time the yard, Djupviks Varv, was marketing an patrol boat based on a coast guard cutter.
The design, built entirely in aluminium, derives from the KBV 281, which with a broadening of the hull and a new super-
structure became the KBV 288. She then formed the base for Bevakningsbåt 2000 (Patrol Boat 2000), as the design is called by the yard.
