The contract for the construction of 4 ships at RMK Marine Shipyard was signed on 16 January 2007. The keel of the first ship Dost was laid on 3 Mayıs 2008.
The design of the these ships are based on the Sirio class vessels produced by Italian Fincantieri.
With the commissioning of these ships Coast Guard will be able to perform its duties mainly search and rescue in sea state 5 and higher.

A beautiful design
Is there a reason for the striping on the side? Almost all the ships seem to have it.
The German Coast Gurad (Küstenwache) is not a single/independent organization but combines parts of the federal police, navy and others but all have written "Küstenwache" on their vessels
The Federal Waterways and Shipping Administration contributes 4 ships (black & white ships)
The Federal Police contributes 6 ships and 8 helicopters (blue ships)
The Customs Office contributes 11 or 12 ships (green ships)
The Ministry for Agricultur contributes 6 ships (black & grey ships)
The Navy contributes some surveillance planes
Patrol vessel - Gurza class.
The design consists of a wide red bar forward of a narrow blue bar both canted at 64 degrees above the horizontal with the Coast Guard emblem superimposed. It was originally recommended in 1964 by the industrial design firm of Raymond Loewy/William Snaith, Incorporated and was adopted service-wide on 6 April 1967.
The Racing Stripe was designed in 1964 by the industrial design office of Raymond Loewy Associates to give the Coast Guard a distinctive, modern image and was first used in 1967. The symbol is a narrow blue bar, a narrow white stripe between, and a broad red bar with the Coast Guard shield centered. The stripes are canted at a 64 degree angle, coincidentally the year the Racing Stripe was designed.  The Stripe has been adopted for the use of other coast guards, such as the Canadian Coast Guard, the Italian Guardia Costiera, the French Maritime Gendarmerie, the Indian Coast Guard, the German Federal Coast Guard, and the Australian Customs Service. Auxiliary vessels maintained by the Coast Guard also carry the Stripe in inverted colors.
