The Tuzla-class New Type Patrol Boat (Turkish: Yeni Tip Karakol Botu) is a patrol boat class of the Turkish Navy. The Tuzla class, named after a district in Istanbul with the same name, have been designed by Dearsan Shipyards in order to meet the operational requirements of the Turkish Navy in littoral waters. These patrol boats conduct patrol, security and anti-submarine warfare (ASW) duties in or around harbors & coastal areas.

The contract between Turkish Navy and Dearsan signed on 23 August 2007 called for 16 New Type Patrol Boats to be constructed until 2015. Along with Dearsan, 204 domestic supplier firms are involved with the NTPB project as well as several foreign ones such as MTU or Oto Melara. The project is a first for the Turkish Navy and the Turkish military shipbuilding industry as there is a 67.5% domestic production percentage compared with 65% for the MILGEM-project.
As of 2015, all 16 boats have been delivered to the Turkish Navy.

As of 2015, 10 units were delivered and operational to the Turkmenistan Navy, the first and currently only foreign operator of the Tuzla-class patrol boat.
