Following extensive research the Australian Victoria Water Police decided that a Teknicraft catamaran will provide the best features and performance for their operations.

The main role of the Water Police consist of law enforcement on the water, and search and rescue. They provide a 24-hour response service which patrols Port Phillip and Western Port bays and other waterways throughout Victoria including coastal, enclosed and inland waters.

The new Teknicraft designed vessel was built by Q-West Boatbuilders and shipped to Australia following sea trials.
