Portumna Water Rescue Service (Galway) have just taken delivery of their new Redbay Stormforce 7.4. The RIB has been built to meet the requirements for a practical and functional rescue vessel.
Layout is based on an open console design, with a single console forward. Aft of this console are two individual pod seats offset to port and starboard, giving the typica delta seating formation. This allows plenty of space in the centre and rear of the RIB, and good access all round. Each seat also features grabrails and footstraps for added security.
The RIB is powered by twin Yamaha 115hp four stroke outboards.
Aft is a stainless steel transom mounted A-Frame, with self-righting bag, flare box holders, towing bar and the usual typcial A-frame mounted accessories.
Electrics include a Garmin GPS and ICOM VHF DSC Radio. The RIB is also equipped with a 12V battery charging socket.
