In particular, the note continues. «the boats will allow young students, in addition to familiarizing themselves with the “ship” environment, to also be able to acquire skills relating to kinematic and mooring maneuvers as well as safety activities».

In order to maximize the training purpose, the Tirma units will have characteristics similar to those of front-line naval units. In fact, they will be able to accommodate, in high living standards, a crew of 4 permanent people and a maximum of 20 people in training from the Naval Academy.

The units will be able to operate both in the open sea and in port waters, as well as in shallow waters, without tugboat assistance and in adverse sea conditions. The ships will have steerable propeller propulsion and will be able to reach a maximum speed of 15 knots.
