Design and building history - 15.04.2014 by Sebastien Schmidt
SUI-194 and SUI 195 are exact sister-ships to SUI-187 and SUI-188 (from the same moulds), except for the keel that have been simplified by immobilizing the trim tab. Fin area have been then slightly increased to compensate the lost of generated side force.
Building during winter 1994-95 and launched in 1995.
