The Customs Boat


One of the four 42m Customs Cutters operated by the UK Borders Agency in Huskisson Dock, Liverpool as the late afternoon sun shines.

Built by the Damen Shipyard in the Netherlands at a cost of £4.3 million each, they entered service between 2001 and 2004. Although in theory the UKBA may fire on vessels under very specific conditions the Cutters actually are unarmed.
