We hold in the highest regard those mariners who head out in the worst sea conditions for the benefit of others.
With that in mind, we can’t get enough of the video footage of sea trials from builders that design and manufacture some of the most seaworthy boats on the planet for rescuers.
Here’s a “best of” compilation from Safehaven Marine, an Irish builder of pilot and patrol boats, shown pushing its vessels to the limit.
Established in 1998, Safehaven Marine has built more than 110 boats for 25 countries worldwide.
The commercial builder in Cork boasts that its pilot boats can safely operate in all weather conditions up to Force 9 and in 26-foot-plus wave heights.
