Marine Rescue Two Rocks WA receives full system upgrades to
Guardian 1 - 8.5m Naiad rescue vessel.
Guardian 1 is a NIAD rigid hulled inflatable boat (RHIB) based on an 8.5 meter hull and dedicated Rescue Vessel for Volunteer Marine Rescue Group Two Rocks. The vessel will undergo extensive refurbishment and receive a complete new marine navigation and communications electronics system.
Simon commissioned a full refit of SIMRAD Marine Navigation Technologies which will better enable the group to carry out search and rescue with more efficiency and accuracy, proudly serving the boating community of Two Rocks and surrounds.
Refit at Kirby Marine - October 2016
Guardian 1 is on its way to Kirby Marine where the start of the refit begins. Manufacturer Kirby Marine has been custom-designing and building marine vessels for 25 years based in the Henderson Marine Precinct of Western Australia.
About 8.5m Naiad rescue vessels:
Volunteer Marine Groups all over WA have chosen this vessel for their operations. They provide an armchair ride and very fast response. The boats have been individualized to suit the requirements of the different service areas and are obviously the chosen craft to venture into the rough and unpredictable seas of the southern coast of WA.
SIMRAD Marine Electronics - January 2017
The complete electronics install was conducted at the Volunteer Marine Rescue Group Two Rock's marina premises. Mandurah Marine Electrical was awarded the contract to supply, install and commission Guardian 1 with a full package of SIMRAD navigation electronics.
