Waiheke Island

Vessel Information

Until July 2009, we operated an 8.5 metre Naiad Protector, rigid hulled inflatable boat known as Waiheke Rescue. In mid 2010, we launched our new 10.2 metre Naiad designed rigid hulled inflatable boat. This vessel is kept in the water at Matiatia to enable quick launching when required. 

The new boat has been designed to suit the unique requirements that the unit has as a coastguard unit on Waiheke Island.  It is hoped in the future to acquire a hydraulic lift to reduce maintenance costs.
