The Vanguard SOLAS 420 RB is a robust, lightweight and high-capacity semi-rigid compact boat, designed, built and tested under the latest standards.
The hull is manufactured from 4mm thick marine aluminium and has a closed cell foam core to ensure it is lightweight and fast while providing excellent stability and low fuel consumption. The tube has five independent air chambers and the boat can be powered by a 25 or 40 hp outboard engine for quick planing.
The boat is designed to be more than just a man overboard or rescue boat for quickly rescueing crew members that may fall into the sea or a craft for grouping and communicating between liferafts in the event of an accident. It can also be used as a work boat for everyday tasks in operations for transferring crew and equipment, carrying out inspections, and aubiliary tasks.
