The 7,5 m FRC is a third-generation design built around the already well proven ProZero 7,5-meter Fast Rescue Boat. The first two iterations of the 7,5-metre FRC design have been developed and tested thoroughly during the ProZero development project for which Tuco received funding under the Horizon2020 SME Instrument programme. This development project ended in 2018, but Tuco Marine has continued to refine the project results and implement them in the ProZero series. The third generation FRC represents the highest level of refinement yet.
The carbon fibre materials technology secures ultra-high levels of strength and durability at a very low structural weight. The new design presents a very large deck area which will accommodate large payloads or up to 16 persons. New bow and fender configurations have been added for improved safety during transfer operations across the bow.
As standard the FRC features a single water jet installation, but twin water jet installations are available upon request.
