The VLI boats will have a length of 16 meters, a width of 4.50 meters and a capacity for 36 passengers with their cargo and equipment. The VLI can reach speeds of 15 knots with a range of 300 nautical miles.

The VLI transport boat was designed by naval architect firm Pierre Delion and will be built by SOCARENAM in northern France. SOCARENAM built the CNIM designed EDAR/L-CAT landing catamaran sea to shore connectors of the French Navy as well as designed and built the new "Ready Duty Ship" patrol vessels of the Belgian Navy.

The delivery of the first ten VLI transport boats is planned for 2016.
