Nearly four tonnes of cocaine worth an estimated $US260m have been seized by international law enforcement officers in the Atlantic.

The drugs were found on a boat between Portugal's Madeira and Azores islands.

Officials found 165 individual packages of cocaine weighing 23kg ‑ a total of 3.7 tonnes ‑ concealed beneath the vessel's cooking area.

It is not clear where the drugs were being taken to.

The crew, from Turkey and Azerbaijan, were arrested.
