New Rescue

New Rescue Boat from NorMar

Norwegian Maritime Equipment AS has extended their range of rescue boats with a small model designed for outboard propulsion. The boat, denominated Normar 425, is a well balanced GRP rescue boat with a capacity of six (6) persons. The overall length is 4.25m, breadth 1.84m and weight 316 kg (ex. engine and fuel). The stability of the boat is ensured by the particular design, as the outer and inner hulls are shaped in separate mould, then connected to shape the seats and buoyancy tanks. The buoyancy tank provides sufficient buoyancy to float the boat at flooded condition with all persons onboard. The boat can be delivered with or without engine, and has a full SOLAS and BV-EC approval. The Normar 425 is the latest rescue boat model on the market, and probably the most competitive of its kind.
