LION Foundation Rescue
T. R. Healy
Dive Boat 1
Lady Elizabeth IV
Built for the Maritime Unit of the New Zealand Police, this vessel was designed to meet a challenging combination of requirements.
The specification called for a multi-role vessel to be deployed on a wide variety of missions; including inter-coastal police and patrolling duties, customs work, search and rescue, as well as an occasional fast transport service. The vessel also needed a high sprint speed, economical cruising speed, a long service range, and excellent rough water capabilities.
Teknicraft's design of Deodar III met these requirements perfectly with a top speed of 43 knots, and an economical cruising speed of
30 knots at a minimal 5 litres per nautical mile fuel consumption.
