Ocean Craft Marine Delivers SAR Boat & Training to Bahamas

Feel safer than ever when cruising the Bahamas. Ocean Craft Marine (OCM) delivered a custom-designed, high-performance Search and Rescue (SAR) Rigid Hull Inflatable Boat (RHIB) to Buckeye Marine Terminal in Freeport, Bahama Grand Island, in December. The provision came with three days of combined classroom and on-water SAR instruction to twenty-two students. The students were comprised of Coastal Pilots of Buckeye as well as members of the Royal Bahama Defense Force (RBDF).

“This SAR craft offers a unique, fast deployable and high-speed response time capability to man-overboard rescue situations in and around the off-shore fuel-bunkering platforms that did not previously exist in this operational area,” says Todd Salus, OCM’s vice president.
