NOROIT was based in St-Malo from 1988 until late 2007 when she was replaced by the speedboat DF 46 Avel Sterenn.

The Noroit has a polyester resin hull and is powered by diesel engines of a total power of 1100 hp. She was built to Guy Couach yards.

A model of this unit was made in the number 53 (August 1995) of the journal RC Marine.
