8.0m Rescue Vessel

Cape Rose

The first Southerly Designs vessel for Marine Rescue Western Australia, Cape Rose is a twin outboard, hardtop all weather search and rescue vessel. An open rear bulkhead enhances operations and allows crew to easily move throughout the entire vessel safely. Custom foam filled collars provide both stability at rest along with an exceptionally suitable platform for regular interactions with other vessels. Southerly Designs has also been awarded the contract to design a larger 12.0m rescue vessel which will operate along side her smaller sister Cape Rose in Shark Bay.
