The FRB700 Rigid Inflatable Fast Rescue Boat is designed for rescue operations on the high seas. It is designed for 3 crew, hence fitted on 2 x JS1 Jockey seats and a leaning post for the pilot, and a stretcher. Its wide console protects the pilot against the wind and sea spray, whilst providing sufficient space to install state-of-the-art electronic equipment, as well as the engine compartment.
It is connected to the single point hoisting system with a Henriksen quick release mechanism, which allows for a swift and stable deployment and retrieval.
It is equipped with a 220HP VOLVO inboard diesel engine and a Hamilton Water Jet propulsion system. Fuel is supplied via a 200L under deck fuel tank, which allows for an average endurance of 4 hours and maximum speed of 32 Kn.
The A Frame located at the rear incorporates self-righting system, a radar reflector, a life buoy and navigation lights.
The transom has a built-in hatch, which facilitates visual checks of the turbine, as well as bilge pumps for self-draining of the hull.
The deep V-shape hull allows smooth sailing and maneuverability, whilst its reinforced structure offers greater resistance and life span.
The deck is made of a reinforced fiberglass board and treated with a non-slip and fireproof coating.
