  • New boat for local rescue team
  • June 30, 2014

THE new Marine Rescue unit at Shellharbour welcomed a new 10 metre-long member to the team yesterday.

The Naiad vessel, named Shelly’s Rescue (SH30) is the newest edition at the Shellharbour marine Rescue unit, to help better its response times and sea range. The boat was built in Yamba and features state-of-the-art electronics including a night vision camera, sea map and the latest GPS navigation system. It can also travel 15 nautical miles out to sea and further if needed, with clearance from the Water Police and can travel at 40 knots, for a faster response.
