The Rescueboard is minimal, battery powered vessel for short range rescue and assistance on most types of waters. It's under development as an in-house project.
The Rescueboard project is the result of more then a decade of designing, developing, prototyping and testing small rescue boats, rescue equipment and systems for the Swedish Sea Rescue Society, Sjöräddningssällskapet.
+ Small and light enough to bring along in a car, in a helicopter, on any boat, after an ATV or shorter distances on foot
+ Can go where bigger boats can't
+ Boarding small boat
+ Shallow and rocky waters
+ Waters with debris or ice
+ Simple, sturdy construction for minimal maintenance and high reliability
+ Lithium-ion battery for range and deep cycles
+ Minimum training – safe and fun to use for anyone
- Not intended for surf; not as fast as a PWC, more buoyancy than a surf board
Speed and maneuverability test in sub zero temperature with prototype #1.1
