New Arancia Flood Rescue Boats, August 2016
We can finally reveal our latest fleet updates - two brand new Arancia 380 Flood Rescue boats and 30Hp surf rescue spec outboards, plus all the equipment needed to comply with DEFRA flood rescue team requirements as a national asset. These replace our two old boats which have served us well but are not in this league at all. Now looking forward to seeing what they will do on the water.
