INS Sumitra is the fourth and last Saryu class patrol vessel of the Indian Navy, designed and constructed by Goa Shipyard Limited. It is also the presidential yacht of India.

It is designed to undertake fleet support operations, coastal and offshore patrolling, ocean surveillance and monitoring of sea lines of communications and offshore assets and escort duties.

Saryu class was derived from Sankalp-class vessels built for the Indian Coast Guard. The ships were designed by GSL's in-house design team and built at a cost of ₹2,452 crore (equivalent to ₹47 billion or US$590 million in 2020).

The patrol vessels have a length of 105 m (344 ft), a beam of 12.9 m (42 ft), and a draught of 4.9 m (16 ft). They have a displacement of 2,230 t (2,190 long tons; 2,460 short tons).

The vessels are powered by two Pielstick diesel engines rated at a combined 21,725 metric horsepower (15,979 kW), each driving a Wärtsilä WCP 5C10 controllable-pitch propeller through a reduction gearbox.

The Saryu class patrol vessel is armed with a 76 mm/62 Oto Melara gun and two 30 mm/65 AK-630 CIWS. The OPVs can carry a complement of 118 sailors.
