Vessel Information

The Hibiscus unit now operates two dedicated Rescue Vessels. Hibiscus Rescue One is a 9.5 metre Naiad vessel based out of Gulf Harbour.

In 2008 a second rescue vessel was added based at the Hibiscus Coast Boating Club in Stanmore Bay. This is a 6.9 metre  Sealegs - the only vessel of its kind in Coastguard Service. It has powered, retractable wheels that allow it to drive straight into and out of the water, ideal for transferring people and equipment onto land. The addition of this vessel on the Northern side of the Whangaparaoa peninsula has also dramatically improved our response time for incidents North of the peninsula.
