On July 2, 2013, Norsafe and the Swedish Coastguard (KBV) signed a frame contract concerning the delivery of their next generation workboats. The total number of boats is undecided but in October Norsafe received the seventh boat order for delivery in 2014 - a contract to deliver the next generation Magnum 750 rescue boats.

In 1997, KBV purchased new workboats from Norsafe, and this resulted in the design of Norsafe’s Magnum 750. These boats are still in active duty by KBV 15 years later and are used for dive-operations, controlling speed and alcohol at sea, custom inspections and search and rescue operations amongst other tasks. The boats are in operation from the southernmost tip of Sweden to the far north.

Norsafe said it has confirmed its position as a trustworthy supplier of high-end rescue boats for the military and professional market, a market that accepts nothing less than the best. We are delighted to be given the task of delivering the next generation Magnum 750 rescue boats to the KBV. This experience will be influence the new design of the boat which will affect all our future customers. The new design will mainly consist of an upgrade of the console making more room for electronic equipment, enhanced operator ergonomics/occupational safety and easier access for maintenance. The boat will carry a 400 HP Bukh Marine Diesel engine and a Hamilton 274 waterjet, enabling the boat to perform speeds up to 40 knots. The boat also has the latest technology within marine navigation and communication equipment.
