Trillian Trust Rescue Launched

The latest addition to Auckland Coastguard’s fleet, Trillian Trust Rescue, was officially launched on August 08. Mayor Phil Goff christened the vessel in front over 100 supporters and volunteers.

The vessel, designed by Naiad and built by Alloy Cats in Mt Maunganui, is powered by twin 700hp Scania diesels and equipped with the latest navigational electronics.

Costing $1.6m she was funded through the generous support of Trillian Trust, with assistance from the Lion Foundation, Foundation North, Lottery Grants Board and Kelliher Charitable Trust.
