There are more than 60 vessels in the Royal Canadian Marine Rescue fleet. All of them are dedicated search and rescue vessels with the navigation, communications, and rescue equipment needed to serve their area.
RCM-SAR is standardizing its vessels and has introduced new designs to meet the requirements of search and rescue on the British Columbia coast. These new vessels are state-of-the-art and provide our crews with added safety and the ability to handle longer, more complex missions.
