Checkmate fast patrol boat skirts displayed at DSEI

The Defence And Security Equipment International (DSEI) exhibition is Europe’s largest military equipment exhibition and is held in London.

Checkmate Flexible Engineering’s managing partner Tom Roach is pictured with His Majesty’s Norwegian Ship ‘Storm’ – one of the new series of Skjold Class fast patrol boats which Checkmate Flexible Engineering (CFE) has made skirts for.

These are very high performance craft, capable of speeds up to 60 knots. The rubber parts weigh about two tonnes and are designed and built by Checkmate in Melksham.

CFE is the world’s most experienced hovercraft skirt maker and is proud to have made parts for most of the western world’s hovercraft and surface effect ships (sidewall hovercraft).
