Small Rescue Boats

Tough, handy inflatable boats designed for Rescue and Emergency Services.

Speedily deployed, these 3 metre paddleboats are easy to handle and have an excellent payload capacity of up to 700 kg. Equipped with four separate air chambers and all round external and internal grablines, safety is at the forefront of design. 

The packed size of just 105 x 50 x 38 cm and weight of only 37 kg allows for easy stowage when space is tight.

In service all over Europe, they have proved time and again they can meet the varied and demanding tasks faced by Rescue Services in the harshest terrains.
