 Construction began in December 2014 for the vessel, which is based on German shipbuilder Fassmer's OPV-80 design. The new OPV is 80 m long and displaces 1,725 tonnes.

 Captain Freddy Zarate, engineering manager at COTECMAR, told IHS Jane's in October that Santander is the third OPV-80 to be built by COTEMAR, after ARC 20 de Julio and ARC 7 de Agosto .
