Harding Safety Lifeboat

Harding Safety Lifeboat

Made tough. Designed to survive.

This unusual looking boat could have the most important job in our fleet!

It is a fully-enclosed survival vessel designed to give tanker crew a safe exit, offering protection from burning oil and dangerous gasses. The lifeboat is designed for ships or offshore installations. Its hatches hermetically seal and special features include a compressed-air passenger breathing system and a seawater pump to spray the entire boat for cooling.

The lifeboat will even right itself after turning 360 degrees.

It is owned and operated by the Sydney Institute of TAFE Marine Technology Centre and is used for training.
