Size: 8.5m Dedicated Rescue Vessel
Location: Riverton, South Island, New Zealand
The Riverton Coastguard took delivery of their new State of the Art Naiad in late August 1999, following a tragic air accident that claimed the lives of four people. The vessel is named after the youngest of the victims, Russell John Chisholm. Russell's family and friends raised the money to provide a fast, up to the minute boat which could work a rescue in the severe conditions put up by Foveaux Strait at the bottom of the South Island of New Zealand.
This vessel is powered by twin 225hp Yamaha outboards and reaches a top speed of 90 kph. Naiad's deep vee hull design allows this boat to cut through the steep seas with ease keeping the crew fresh for the rescue with its soft ride.
