Making its debut on the sparkling waters of Jervis Bay on the NSW South Coast in June was the $850,000, 13.5 metre monohull Jervis Bay 41.
This is quite a different set up compared to a traditional cruiser allowing a very dry ride even in heavy seas, and giving a solid operational platform in the most trying of conditions.
The vessel also boasts a carbon fibre lifting davit with sockets both port and starboard as well as on the fly bridge to assist in lowering life rafts for servicing, lifting heavy objects from the water or transferring light cargo from vessel to vessel or to wharf.
The latest in electronics are another key feature of Jervis Bay 41, with full Raymarine suite with customized digital switching working from four stations including the fly bridge. With 16" multifunction displays, radio direction finder, FLIR camera and two loud hailers, the vessel is well set up to quickly locate vessels in trouble when vital seconds count.
Marine Rescue NSW Fleet Manager Kelvin Parkin says "This build has fulfilled its promise of being 'one out of the box', providing the Jervis Bay community with a next generation rescue boat able to meet their needs now and well into the future."
