Avon Searider 5.4 metre RIB
Event Fire Solutions use the Avon Searider as its main rescue boat due to the quality and sea worthiness of this amazing RIB. It is recognised throughout the world with the majority of models seeing service in the armed forces as well as commercial and rescue duties. They are well designed and solidly built which means they can take an awful lot of punishment, more so than some of the 'modern' equivalents therefore, very reliable which we class as a must for our clients. The deep V of the hull cuts through the water giving a smoother ride than a similar RIB with a flatter profile. One of the main differences is the unique flooding hull design of the Searider which means that the RIB sinks down slightly in the water at rest providing a stable platform to work from or dive off. In combination with its 65hp Yamaha outboard engine this boat is a very powerful and effective resource that is a fantastic rescue asset at any event, able to be used on any tidal or non-tidal waters.
Zodiac 4m rib
Our 4m rib is made from glued structure Strongan™ fabric and has large diameter buoyancy tubes which give it an impressive load capacity. This lightweight rib can be used as a great support boat to our main rescue rib at larger events or as an individual rescue boat for those smaller events. It is very portable and able to be deployed in the most remote or difficult to get to locations making it a very flexible asset. In conjunction with a 35hp Mariner outboard engine this boat is a simple but very effective rescue capability.
