New Rescue Boat
The project to replace one of our ageing coaching RIBs began at the end of the 2018-19 season. Our RIB Quicksilver, formerly Bob Beveridge was nearing the end of its effective life as a club RIB.
A dedicated effort from Luke and Vaughan resulted in a new 3.6m RIB from Christchurch manufacturer King Watercraft being purchased with assistance from the New Zealand Communities Trust.
The new boat has an engine provided by Powerboat Centre and sits on a Watercraft Trailer from Trailer Services, and will be used by our Learn to Sail and Junior Coaching team.
