The Dabur class is a class of patrol boats built at the Sewart Seacraft shipyard in the United States for the Israeli Navy, and by IAI-Ramta.

Dabur boats' first battle engagements were made in the October 1973 Yom Kippur War. During the war, two Dabur boats attacked an Egyptian commando force in its own port at Marse Telemat and destroyed speed boats and rubber dinghies just as they were preparing for attacks on Israeli targets in the Sinai Peninsula.[1][4]
