A brand new Rescue Runner, sponsored by an anonymous donor, and transported to South Africa from Sweden by Safmarine has been delivered safely to our doors by GF Trucking.
This state-of-the-art craft, that can reach a speed of 40 knots, represents the latest in sea rescue technology globally. It has been designed specifically for rapidly reaching people at risk in the surf and evacuating them quickly and effectively.
A Rescue Runner, which can be used by a single rescuer, can be launched at swimming beaches. It is jet propelled which allows it to be used in a bathing area without placing other bathers at risk. A Rescue Runner can carry four people at a time, but can also be used as a floating platform for up to eight people until larger rescue boats arrive.
A big thank you to John MacDonald of Safmarine, Craig Garrow of Pronto Clearing and Godfrey Fisher of GF Trucking who organised the safe delivery of this vessel at no cost to Sea Rescue.
