UFMG’s ultra-high-speed vessels have been tested, proven and purchased by some of the world’s most advanced Navies, Special Operations Forces, Police organizations, Commercial operations and luxury yacht owners.
A number of private clients have purchased vessels as fast luxury yachts, similar to private jet planes. The range called Force has been very successful in the Cannes, Corsica, St Tropez, Porto, Cervo, and Caraibs markets.
A version with Lamborghini and UFM developed the Force 16 range with AMG engines (Mercedes).
With AIR FRANCE as a partner, a new luxury high speed fast shuttle is offered between Nice to Monaco, Cannes and St Tropez and cruises serenely at sea, away from traffic.
The new large Super Yacht developed by the Brand Union Force Marine are the first vessels to be delivered with sophisticated Tender Features (TF). TF prevents pirates and other intruders from boarding a ship. TF uses drones to deter pirates from approaching the ship. TF anticipates risks well ahead of time.

UFM Group is the first brand to build OPV, Light Destroyer, escort Interceptor’s carriers and launchers to protect large merchant vessels; vital for the protection of international traffic and to anticipate the action of Terrorism (a reality which Lloyds of London understands very well).
