Patrol Boat "Tagomago" (P-22) Ships

WELCOMING ADDRESS

Welcome to the “Anaga”-class patrol boats website. The original series consisted of ten vessels specially designed for coastal surveillance, fisheries control and search and rescue in case of incidents at sea. The patrol boats are named after different Spanish islands or small isles and were built by Bazán (now Navantia) in its shipyards of San Fernando (Cádiz).

HISTORY

The “Tagomago”, second of its class, was launched in February 1980 and delivered to the Spanish Navy on January 30th 1981. The ship received the battle ensign from her sponsor, Mrs. Remedios Montánez, in La Gomera (Canary Islands). As of July 2012, the boat is stationed in the port of Málaga.

An incident worth mentioning is the machine-gunning in the Sahara fishing ground on September 21st 1985 while searching for the trawler “Junquito”. The patrol boat took 48 hits and a Leading Seaman, José Manuel Castro was killed in action. Particularly noteworthy was the role played by the Medical Corps 2nd Lieutenant Antonio Acosta and the ship's commanding officer, preventing further casualties.

FEATURES

The ship's hulls are made of naval steel (Martin Siemens) and the superstructures of aluminum. Their endurance is of 12 days at 10 knots with a maximum speed of 15 knots. The ships are fitted to enable them to conduct light cargo transfers, towing other vessels and vertical replenishment with helicopters, among other capabilities.

MISSIONS

The main mission of these ships is maritime surveillance to protect national maritime interests, paying special attention to fisheries control, illegal immigration, SAR activities and support to other units. These vessels can tow other ships of similar size. They are particularly suitable for all-weather coastal patrols and can operate as fire-fighting units.

The “Anaga”-class patrol boats also collaborate with other State departments with responsibilities in the maritime domain: maritime rescue, constabulary tasks, drug-smuggling, illegal immigration, trafficking, terrorism, fishing surveillance, environmental disasters, etc.
