6.5m HDPE Western Australia Flood Rescue Vessel

This rugged 6.5 metre rescue vessel has been designed for service with Western Australian emergency authorities and is of full HDPE construction including its hard collar. The superior abrasion and puncture resistance of its HDPE hulls makes it nearly indestructible. Powered by twin 90hp outboards, the vessel can reach 25 knots with excellent manoeuvrability across its speed range. Trailerable, the vessel can be rapidly deployed in emergency situations. A rescue door fitted to starboard facilitates water rescues with the high volume collars ensuring excellent stability throughout the rescue operation. In survey to Australian NSCV 2D standards, the vessel can transport a crew of two plus up to four additional passengers.
