Vanguard Marine has appointed Ocean Safety to distribute its SOLAS 420RB rescue boat in the UK and Ireland.

The 420RB is Vanguard’s model for the SOLAS market, meeting the standards required for the commercial maritime sector and fills a gap in Ocean Safety’s safety product portfolio.

“Vanguard offers a technically advanced SOLAS rescue boat, which will complement our range of safety equipment for the commercial maritime and offshore support sector,” explained Ocean Safety’s head of sales Mark Acaster. “We have a long and demonstrable track record of expertise with this type of commercial rescue boat, as well as our supply and service of SOLAS and Ships Wheel approved safety equipment.”

The RIB is designed and equipped to recover fallen overboard crew members from the sea, even in adverse conditions. 

It can also be used for vessel monitoring and maintenance as well as for grouping, towing and organising liferafts at sea.

It is fully equipped including first aid kit, searchlight, sea anchor, thermal protective aids, non-spill 45 litre fuel tank, battery and battery charger.

Users can choose from a Yamaha or Mercury 25hp or 40hp outboard.
