The Musherib-class offshore patrol vessels built for the Qatari Emiri Navy.

Fincantieri showcased Musherib-class offshore patrol vessels for the Qatari Emiri Navy during DIMDEX 2018. In August 2017, Qatar officially announced for the order of the 2 ships of the class after singing the contract in June 2016.

They are able to operate high speed boats such as Rigid Hull Inflatable Boat with the help of lateral cranes and hauling ramps.

The first offshore patrol vessel was laid down in August 2017 in Fincantieri shipyard in Muggiano, Italy. She was launched on 18 September 2020, and expected to arrive in Qatar in 2022.
