Australian made Maritime Fleet Vessels

NSW Maritime has received the first of five new purpose-build incident response vessels. These vessels have the capabilities to support first responders during an emergency while delivering a significant boost to the current fleet. They are extremely durable and fitted with the latest state-of-the-art technology.

Each vessel is 5.3m long and fitted with a stabilised camera that can be viewed locally or streamed and controlled from the State Marine Incident Coordination Centre.

The vessels will enter service over the next 12 months and will be strategically stationed at key maritime bases in Northern New South Wales, the South Coast and the high-tech headquarters in Rozelle, to respond to any unfolding marine situation.

Each vessel will have capacity for 2 crew members and 6 passengers, will have a 2.9m tender for even greater access and a purpose-built trailer for on-land transportation. These marine-grade, aluminium incident response vessels have been designed and manufactured in Australia for Australian conditions.
