Made from fiberglass, it features a rigid hull inflatable boat (RHIB) design, tailored to navigate challenging marine environments effectively. This vessel measures 9.7 meters in length and 3.17 meters in width, offering a substantial platform for operational tasks. It has a weight capacity of 2,580 kilograms and is equipped to transport up to 15 passengers.

The boat is powered by outboard motors, with options ranging from 500 to 800 horsepower, allowing for a top cruising speed of 121 km/h. It also boasts a fuel capacity of 746 liters, enabling extended missions without frequent refueling.

A key feature of the ASIS 9.5 Military RIB is its Air Hull® design, incorporating Reverse U Chines Hull technology. This design element aims to enhance sea-keeping abilities by improving the vessel's stability and maneuverability, especially in adverse sea conditions.

The design facilitates efficient propulsion and controlled handling, particularly in making sharp turns, thereby supporting the vessel's operational capabilities in a variety of scenarios.
