These state-of-the-art lifeboats, which are part of a new class of search and rescue (SAR) vessels commissioned in Canada, are primarily intended for search and rescue missions at sea. Because of their speed and ability to navigate in difficult weather conditions, these medium-range dispatch boats provide greater flexibility in SAR operations.
The lifeboats are each equipped with two diesel engines generating a total of 670 kW, allowing them to reach a maximum speed of 25 knots. Other benefits of this type of vessel include a flying bridge allowing unrestricted visibility; a low freeboard for recovering casualties from the water; and the vessels will right themselves when capsized, even if the wheelhouse is flooded.
The lifeboats's crews. which are land-based, provide 24/7 search and rescue coverage on the 30-minute state of readiness during the operational season. Each four-member crew is made up of a Commanding Officer, an Engineering Officer and two Leading Seamen. Two crews take turns aboard the vessels providing comprehensive service during the operation season.
The rescue units can also be called on to take part in operations related to aids to navigation and environmental response.
