The RV Larapuna (centre console 4.5 metre rigid inflatable) has arrived and is aboard the Freycinet ready to go. Our crew have tested her out on the barway and we are very happy with her performance.

St Helens Marine Rescue wishes to thank:

  • Gemini for discounting the hull.
  • Ashley Dunne from Inflatable Boats Tasmania, who went out of his way to assist us.
  • Hadley and his crew at Deegan Marine, who have once again supported us with fitting out and another great Evinrude outboard.
  • The Cruising Yacht Club of Australia’s Solas Fund provided $20,000 towards the cost of RV Larapuna. Thank you to Mark Woolf and Matt Allen with whom we corresponded.

We are extemely pleased to be able to provide our Break O’Day Community with more support for their safety on the water.
