In South Africa the NSRI comprises over 1350 volunteers who generously give their time across 50 rescue bases, encompassing satellite or auxiliary stations and inland dams. They’re on call 24/7.

Cape Town based Gemini is the supplier of their SAR RIBs sinds decades proving their seaworthiness and operational reliability.

Build of Chaterina D Rescue RIB

The Chaterina D Rescue RIB is a Sight to See

Over the upcoming years, the KNRM will retire its Atlantic 75 rescue boats after years of dedicated service, often under demanding conditions.

This inaugural rescue Rigid Inflatable Boat will commence operations this year (2024) under the auspices of KNRM Vlieland.

Following suit, each subsequent step will witness the systematic replacement of all Atlantic 75-class rescue boats with the advanced Chaterina D model.

This Rescue RIB has an aluminium hull and has a wider deck space than the Atlantic 75.

Thank you to the KNRM and all other rescue services for watching our backs.

Preventing Fatigue: World Leading Ullman Seats

Preventing is the Focus

Traveling on high-speed boats can be physically draining due to the considerable energy expended, leading to fatigue and a decline in physical capabilities.

Ullman suspension seats offer a noteworthy reduction in energy consumption compared to fixed seating, a factor that plays a crucial role in mitigating exhaustion.

Military personnel experience a significant decrease in running performance after high-speed transit when utilizing fixed seats.

In contrast, the use of Ullman Jockey Seats results in a 30.5% improvement in post-transit physical performance and endurance compared to fixed seats.

Beyond mitigating the risk of injury, Ullman Seats contribute to enhancing the operational performance of both boat crew and passengers.

This becomes particularly critical in situations where operators are tasked with military or lifesaving activities, as the distinction between being fatigued and alert could determine life or death.

You can find more examples of Ullman’s seats here on RIBsONLY.com.

So proud to share that Ullman Dynamics is a good Friend of RIBs ONLY.
