NUSAR 993

Our newest vehicle 993 is our main Search and Rescue boat.


Commissioned in 2014 this is a versatile and fast responding rescue craft.


Drafting only 16” it can maneuver in shallow waters and get to where the team needs to go.


With a 90hp Mercury outboard engine the boat can reach a top speed of 25 knots fully loaded with crew and team gear.


993 is equipped with a front bow gate that can lower so when the boat is beached loading and unloading of crew or equipment is streamlined. Also it has a side drop stair that allows divers to easily climb out of the water.


Attached are port and starboard side scan sonar transponders that allow the operator and crew to identify and find objects underwater.


A high powered spot light on the overhead allows the crew to search at night for objects or mission persons.
