About Osprey

Osprey is our primary saftey vessel, a 5.7m Delta Rib with a drop down bow door, this provides exceptional access to the water for rescuing a casualty, this type of vessel was designed for use as a rescue vessel for offshore powerboat racing, due to the nature of the injuries that could be sustained the need for a simple way to load a casualty on board without causing unecessary strain was needed, Osprey can be flooded allowing for a casualty to be floated on board, the vessel is then drained whilst underway.

Osprey has a cabin, providing shelter for the crew when operating in windy or rainy conditions.
