Designed in collaboration with international experts in the SAR field, the boats are covered, high speed craft and have different beams.
One is optimized for a double outboard drive solution and is based on Tuco’s proven ProZero hull with a beam of 2.84 m, resulting in an extremely effective hull with great maneuverability.
The wider, 4.05 m beam, sister boat features a full walk-around deck surrounded by full size safety railings and is equipped with inboard diesel engine installation and waterjet propulsion.
End users have been closely involved in the design and layout of the SAR boats and Tuco has worked closely with experienced operators to ensure that the boats will fit the demands of this specific market.
Tuco Marine Group’s ProZero range offers high performance deep V hull shapes, designed specifically for the demanding military and coastguard sector.
ProZero boats are available in a range of variations tuned to suit each individual user’s particular requirements.
Cockpit layouts in the SAR boats are arranged to maximize the use of modern day Search and Rescue management and situational awareness electronic aids.
The ProZero´s high performance deep V hull ensures the boats’ capabilities to go fast, even in rough seas.
SAR missions at high speed in rough seas are mainly limited by the human factor of shock mitigation. All the ProZero SAR boats have been developed around thr design team’s shock mitigation strategy and minimizing the effects of shock in all parts of the vessels has been a primary design focus.
A design aim has been to ensure that the ProZero vessels outperform the current market in reliability as well as easy service.
The complete construction system behind the series is module based, allowing for easy adjusting and customization and the ProZero SAR boats can be rapidly reconfigured to meet different roles and requirements, which can include ambulance variants, fire support variants and command platform variants.
