Marine Rescue Port Hacking’s new $270,000 offshore rescue vessel commissioned at the unit’s new home base at the Hungry Point Reserve, Cronulla.

Emergency Services Minister Michael Gallacher and Federal Member for Cook Scott Morrison joinrf  the MRNSW Board, Commissioner Stacey Tannos and volunteers from the Port Hacking unit for the commissioning ceremony for Port Hacking 30.

Commissioner Tannos said the 8.5 metre Kevlacat was able to travel up to 15 nautical miles offshore, making it a valuable addition to marine search and rescue resources in Greater Sydney.

“Port Hacking 30 will be the third Kevlacat deployed in the region, with its sister ships already on duty on local waters with Marine Rescue Botany Bay and on Sydney Harbour with Marine Rescue Port Jackson,” Commissioner Tannos said.

He added that, "“The vessel forms an important part of Marine Rescue’s strategic safety net of rescue vessels covering the NSW coastline and inland on the Alpine Lakes and the Murray River at Moama.

“It is one of more than 30 new and refurbished vessels delivered to date at a cost of $9 million as part of our ongoing project to upgrade our rescue fleet through the financial support of the NSW Government and the boating community.”
