Vessel Information

The Canterbury unit has a 9.5 metre AMF called Pub Charity Canterbury Rescue.

This vessel was purchased in 2009 with the generous support of local funders including Pub Charity, Perry Foundation and Lottery Grants Board.  The outboard motors were replaced in 2013 with funding support again from Rotary and Pub Charity.  We launch and recover our vessel with a tractor funded by the Mainland Foundation.
