A Tasmanian company which has won a contract to build three patrol boats for the Australian Federal Police expects it will lead to more international business opportunities.

Georges Bay Marine at St Helens on the state's east coast has won a multi-million dollar contract to build the 13-metre long patrol boats for the police to use around Solomon Islands.

The company's owner, Greg Lynd, says it means it will have to boost its 10-member work force.

"It's just opened up a huge door which has allowed us to go ahead and build an 800 metre square factory specifically to build these boats and ... with our other workload at present, which is some thrill-seeking jetboats, we're looking for more and more staff and more benefits for the whole Break O'Day municipality," he said.
