Le Malin In Rodrigues

Le MalinFrench patrol vessel Le Malin is presently in Port Mathurin. Le Malin was Hondurian when in 2004 when she was caught fishing illegally near
Kerguelen and seized. In 2005 she became the property of the French navy and transformation works were started to make her fit for naval missions. They took some time with that and it was delivered to the Directorate General of Armaments in 2011.
The 54m and 1000 tons boat was then transferred to Reunion island where it is now based. It replaced La Rieuse which is now in the Kenyan navy.
