“We were very happy to take delivery of our 2nd Airberth®. Having owned an Airberth® for the past10 years we are well aware of its ease of use and cost savings. It’s more than proven its value to us,our first unit more than paid for itself when compared against maintenance costs & theimprovement in fuel economy due to no anti-foul or marine growth on the hull. It was an easydecision to choose AirBerth® again for our newly commissioned vessel, Rotary III”.

The AirBerth® Boat Lift system is the ultimate in boat protection. They continue to be the preferredchoice for Marine Rescue groups around the world with units recently supplied locally to MarineRescue NSW and Australian Volunteer Coastguard & internationally to the NZ Coast Guard, RoyalNational Lifeboat Institution & the US Coast Guard.
