RESCUE-B / rescue boat


This project started from the realization that there isn’t any boat designed and produced exclusively for a sanitary rescue use in the international boat-yard scene.
One of the main point of this design work is focused on developing an innovative, safe and easy to use system to interact directly with the water.
A real size working model has been realised of this part of the boat.
The final boat result is a 9 m RIB-Rigid Inflatable Boat.
Functional layout, together with the interior design of the sanitary area, the cockpit, the cabin, the windscreen, the storage space and the crew navigation disposition has been a crucial part of the design.
