Coast Guard ship Huravee to Indian navy dockyard for repairs

The Maldivian Coast Guard ship, Huravee, has been docked at the Indian navy dockyard Visakhapatnam for repairs. 

While the ship's extensive refitting is set to cost USD 5 million, it is being funded by India. 

Huravee is a fast-attack craft made in Kolkata, India. The vessel left to India for repairs on 6 July with Commander Major Mohamed Jamsheed and 25 crewmen. 

The vessel is designed and used against pirate and coastal patrol along with anti-drug operations and search and rescue operations.
