RV Larapuna, our 4.5m Gemini RIB

The Rescue Vessel Larapuna is a Gemini centre console 4.5 metre rigid inflatable (RIB), commissioned in October 2010. She is carried in a cradle aboard the Freycinet ready to go during rescue operations.

RV Larapuna is powered by a 50HP Evinrude E-Tec outboard and is equipped with:

  • a Seiwa Barracuda 8″ GPS Chartplotter;
  • a Garmin depth sounder;
  • EPIRB and all safety equipment including PFD’s with PLB’s and flares; and
  • a bilge pump.

She is registered for two crew and five passengers.

The purchase of RV Larapuna was made possible by a generous contribution from the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia’s Solas Fund.

The vessel was named after our magnificent stretch of coastline, the Bay of Fires, known to Aborigines as Larapuna.
