The Coast Guard Ship (CGS) Barracuda, sent for a maiden short refit from February 2021 to October 2021 in India, has been handed back to Mauritius.

The CGS Barracuda was commissioned on 12 March 2015 and has been at the forefront of many operations, providing vital support to our Outer Islands.

It has carried out surveillance of Mauritius’s Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of 2.3 million square kilometres, and participated in various National and International Fleet Reviews.

According to the Minister of Minister of Foreign Affairs, Alan Ganoo,  this refit was carried out free of charge by the Government of India.

In September 2021, Mauritius obtained, free of charge, a Passenger Variant Dornier on lease until the Government procures an aircraft through a Line of Credit from India.
