Without boats, there could be no rescues. The NSRI currently has over 100 rescue vessels, ranging in size from the 3.3 m craft used for surf rescues to the 14.8 m Offshore Rescue Craft (ORC) with offshore capabilities of 50 nautical miles.

We keep abreast of new technology and the latest developments to ensure that our crews have the best equipment possible. We pride ourselves on delivering a passionate and committed service to all – with the best equipment to safeguard our crew and those that they rescue.

Our vessels range in price from R480 000 to R20 million. By sponsoring a boat you, your family or your company can leave a lasting gift as you name the vessel for her lifespan.

In all our media reports and communications, we mention the name of the vessels involved in the rescue operation, ensuring that our sponsors receive publicity for their contribution.
