There are few boats that get treated with such loving care as a Sea Rescue vessel. But then there are few boats that are expected to perform as flawlessly, often under extreme conditions, as one of these yellow and red craft.
Every single time they are retrieved the crew wash them down and check each part with great care as a malfunction could be fatal.
Bearing in mind the conditions that these craft are used in, it is a feather in the cap of any boat builders to have their name on a rescue boat.
Some of the worlds best designs are run in our rescue fleet, and so it is with great pride that an amazing 63 out of 80 boats in the Sea Rescue fleet came out of the Gemini Marine factory.
Local is indeed lekker.
“These guys build a really good boat and they pay great attention to detail. Their boats are simply world class,” says Operations Director Allan Cramb.
