Marine Rescue Tuross rescue vessel TU 21 sea trials begin

Marine Rescue NSW report that sea trials have commenced on the Clarence River at Yamba for the new Marine Rescue Tuross rescue vessel TU 21.

The new 7.5 metre Ocean Cylinder vessel will replace the existing TU 20, which is nearing the end of its operational life. To be based on the Moruya River at Preddys Wharf, the new vessel boasts the latest electronics, increased manoeuvrability and greater volunteer comfort and can operate further offshore and for longer periods.

At the trial were representatives of Yamba Welding & Engineering Pty Ltd and Suzuki Australia as well as Tuross Unit Commander Alan Blessington, Tuross Training Officer Blaise Madden, Monaro Regional Operations Manager Glenn Sullivan and Fleet Officer Sean Jewiss.
