The Iliria-class patrol vessels are a class of patrol boats. They are based on the Damen Stan 4207 design and were built both in the Netherlands and Albania.

These vessels have been designed with noise reduction in mind to reduce crew fatigue, featuring raft-mounted engines, floating decking, and compartments constructed with a box-within-a-box principle.

The patrol vessel has a displacement of 208 tons, a length of 42.8 meters, a beam of 7.11 meters, and a draft of 2.5 meters. She is powered by 4,700 kW and propelled by 2 Caterpillar 3516B TA-HD/D engines, allowing her to reach a speed of 26 knots.

Her range is 2,450 nautical miles at 12 knots and has an endurance of 14 days. She carries 1 RHIB and has a complement of 4 officers and 16 crew. The patrol vessel is equipped with JRC JMA5310-6 X-band and JRC JMA5310-12 S-band sensors and processing systems and is armed with a Nexter M621 NARWHAL 20 mm autocannon.
