SeaHelp rescue boat: Axopar 28 Cabin

What would Europe's largest breakdown and recovery service for recreational boating to provide assistance in non-life-threatening situations be without the appropriate, professionally equipped rescue boats? To meet the growing need for modern response boats, the SeaHelp fleet received two additions in June 2022. Quick check of the two new 400-horsepower, 28-foot-long lifeboats from Axopar.

There are also many SeaHelp restaurant tips here, and for many places on the map there are also high-resolution 360-degree photos or drone videos to get you in the mood. Best of all, this service is free of charge*. So your vacation on the water can begin worry-free.<\/strong>\r\n\r\nDownload and use the SeaHelp service on your cell phone or tablet - that's already been true for users of the handy SeaHelp app<\/a>, which you can easily download for free from popular stores.\r\n\r\nIn addition to the man-and-material-saving SOS function, the latest news and messages about yachts and areas, a GPS \/ compass, a gas station map, weather and tide applications, as well as information on the right yacht insurance, there is also a lot of useful information for sports skippers under the menu item \"info card\".\r\n

Functions simply and reliably - for iOS and Android devices<\/h2>\r\nAnd this is how it works: In the menu of the SeaHelp app, which is available for iOS and Android devices, open the item \"Infocard\" at the bottom left. Attention: Under \"User data\" Adria should be clicked. And then the easy-to-understand, interactive map opens. At the very top of the map there are seven different icons, which you can activate all together or individually.\r\n\r\nIf you select the drone icon on the far right, for example, you can select various locations on the map that you would like to take a \"closer look\" at, because: Drone icons on the map section mark available drone videos<\/a>; the number 360 indicates that there is a 360-degree photo of the location in question. Select icon, click - and the shot is displayed.\r\n

Seven different icons stand for seven different SeaHelp services - free of charge, of course*<\/h2>\r\nIf medical help is needed on board, you activate the icon with the red cross on a white background. Immediately dozens of contact points of doctors and hospitals appear on the map - each with the current phone number.\r\n\r\nIn conjunction with the marina icon, you can quickly find the nearest doctor who is located near a dock in a port. The corresponding telephone number for the marinas is also available at the push of a button.\r\n\r\nIn addition to ports of entry and popular restaurants, the SeaHelp app also makes it child's play to find safe anchorages. If you're not sure whether the anchorage is suitable, simply watch the corresponding drone videos or 360-degree panorama photos on the map in advance (if already available, map is constantly being expanded). Then the crew can simply decide whether it is worth visiting with their own boat or yacht.\r\n\r\n \r\n

We accompanied a team on a mission from Punat on Krk, Croatia.<\/strong>\r\n\r\nNo matter whether it is towing or starting assistance, fuel service, spare parts deliveries, free towing in case of light grounding, freeing lines in the propeller, passenger transport, assistance in case of power failure or fire on board, or whether telephone support was required in medical emergencies - the nautical breakdown service of SeaHelp is available to its members 24 hours a day, 365 days a year with advice and assistance reliably and quickly.\r\n\r\nMostly the rescuers have to do it with light groundings of yachts, here there was an increase of the employments in the comparison to the previous year of 17 per cent, it says from the operation center in Punat; in addition, with electrical problems on board the rescuers are often called (plus 26 per cent) as well as in the cases, in which the sports ship crews are without fuel (plus 27 per cent).\r\n

Often SeaHelp responders have to tow other sport yachts, including a tow today<\/h2>\r\nOften a yacht needs to be towed; here, there was a 41 percent increase in the number of deployments for towing yachts compared to last year for Croatia alone). Towing is always necessary when the yacht is unable to continue under its own power, when the crew asks for assistance, or when it is too dangerous to continue, for example because fuel has leaked.\r\n\r\nSuch a case also happened today - SeaHelp headquarters received a call from an Austrian crew. The crew - a married couple from Gmunden, had left their 22-year-old but well-maintained Gobbi 375 SC<\/a> wanted to refuel. In the process, he said, about 100 liters of diesel accidentally ended up in the bilge instead of in the tank as planned. What to do? Skipper Torsten dialed the SeaHelp phone number.\r\n

On a sport yacht, diesel had accidentally landed in the bilge instead of in the tank - a case for SeaHelp's emergency services<\/h2>\r\nAt the operations center in Punat, Vedran and Marin immediately get ready. It is only a few steps from the office to the harbor where the response boat is moored. While Marin unties the lines, Vedran starts the engines. The two of them routinely cast off - and just a few minutes later they are at full speed on the waterway to Krk. As soon as they enter the bay, they spot the Gobbi - the GRP boat is moored on the western shore at the jetty of a repair yard.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\"SeaHelp<\/a>\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nVedran and Marin go alongside the shipwrecked vessel, get a picture of the situation, reassure the crew. The boat is well fendered and moored, and off they go again out of the bay - with the pleasure craft alongside. As the old town church of Krk slowly moves aft and clear water is reached, the Gobbi is hooked up to the tow line, so that towing can be done more comfortably - and faster.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n

SeaHelp towed the pleasure craft safely to a yacht service in Punat; here the diesel could be professionally pumped out and disposed of<\/h2>\r\nDiesel in the bilge is dangerous, says operations manager Marko Orlic. He says the crew of the Gobbi made the right decision to turn off all consumers on board, close all valves and notify SeaHelp. This way, the boat can now be towed safely to a special shipyard in Punat, where the diesel can be professionally pumped out and disposed of, and the yacht can be professionally cleaned.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nThe owner couple Andrea and Torsten from Gmunden sincerely thanked their \"yellow angels\" Vedran and Marin when they delivered their Naty safe and sound at the yacht service in Punat, for them a membership at SeaHelp<\/a> was a matter of course - once again it has been shown that this was the right decision, said owner Torsten. With a bit of luck, the Gobbi will now be able to continue its journey again soon - thanks to SeaHelp.\r\n\r\n\"Owner<\/a>\r\n

A SeaHelp membership is a given, the owner couple said, and were pleased with the prompt, professional help<\/h2>\r\nThe two SeaHelp employees said a friendly goodbye to the owner couple from Austria, wished them all the best - and set course for their next location, because in the meantime another call for help had already reached the SeaHelp helpline: a yacht had run aground. Could SeaHelp help? Of course, in a few minutes the rescue boat would be on the spot, was the telephone answer of the friendly service employee from the head office. A normal day for the SeaHelp staff from Punat.\r\n

Quick check of the two new 400-horsepower, 28-foot-long lifeboats from Axopar.<\/strong>\r\n\r\nSeaHelp rescue boats, also known as the \"yellow angels on the water\". are not only up to 48 knots (just under 90 km\/h) fast, but on top of that also pure \"pack mules\": salvage balloons, pumps, additional life jackets, equipment for divers, jump-start box and all sorts of other utensils that are particularly useful for rapid assistance at sea are on board in the large back boxes.\r\n\r\nBut SeaHelp does not only attach great importance to the quality of the hull, also the equipment of the rescue boats has to be of top quality and extremely reliable. For example, sufficient safety life jackets for up to 12 people are on board for passenger transport, and diving operations up to 25 meters are possible thanks to special diving equipment carried on board.\r\n\r\nBy means of powerful suction pumps and air bags, leaky boats can be kept afloat.In addition, the equipment of each SeaHelp rescue boat includes a 2 KW power generator as well as standard spare parts such as V-belts, impellers or thermostats for the most common engine manufacturers such as Volvo Penta, Yanmar, MAN, Yamaha or Caterpillar.\r\n

The new operational boats from the Axopar range have been stationed in Pula and on the island of Rab<\/h2>\r\nNo less than two of SeaHelp's fast, robust, yellow-painted response boats were added this season. \"In order to be able to cover also our new bases in Pula and on the island Rab<\/a> with professional operation boats, we had ordered two further boats of the proven and several times distinguished Axopar 28 series\"<\/em>, says SeaHelp managing director Wolfgang Dauser.\r\n\r\nThis would significantly reduce waiting times for SeaHelp members when calling for help in these regions.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\"SeaHelp<\/a>\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nOn May 31, 2022, the second of the two new Axopar 28 Cabin boats was personally taken over by managing director Wolfgang Dauser in Traben-Trarbach in the district of Bernkastel-Wittlich, Rhineland-Palatinate; the takeover of the first boat already took place three weeks earlier on May 5, 2022.\r\n\r\nOn the occasion of the test drive and the takeover of the boat, SeaHelp managing director Wolfgang Dauser answered the questions of Patric Polch, managing director of Boote Polch<\/a> and Axopar dealer for the German-speaking region, in a video lasting about twenty minutes. Where? - Of course in a relaxed atmosphere on the inviting, spacious bow outside area of the new multi-purpose boat already branded in the typical SeaHelp colors and logo on the beautiful Moselle River.\r\n\r\nIn addition to questions about SeaHelp and the benefits of being a membership in Europe's largest breakdown service<\/a>, the two boating professionals took the opportunity to take a closer look at the new rescue boat, whose basis is the 28-foot (9.18-meter) long and up to 2.95-meter wide multi-purpose sports cruiser Axopar 28<\/a> from the Finnish shipyard of the same name is.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=na1U-rCnzhY[\/embed]\r\n\r\n \r\n

The multifunctional boat has excellent seaworthiness even in rough seas<\/h2>\r\nAlso popular with recreational boaters in the private sector, the 28-foot (9.18-meter) long and up to 2.95-meter wide multipurpose sports cruiser Axopar 28 from the Finnish shipyard of the same name is a multifunctional boat with a modern, dynamic style combined with an agile and fuel-efficient hull that boasts excellent seaworthiness even in rough seas.\r\n\r\nVersatile and easy to handle, the walkaround cruiser offers plenty of space for all the needs of an operational boat with rescue tasks thanks to its spacious configuration, and the walkable deck layout guarantees safe freedom of movement and a functional platform.\r\n

Conversion, equipment, testing and certification of the 400 hp boats took place at the Punat operations center<\/h2>\r\nIn addition, the two-level hull with low center of gravity and deep V configuration ensures good directional stability and grip during turns, important especially when waves and wind make navigation difficult.\r\n\r\nThe boat, which is almost ten meters long, has an enclosed cabin - important for the rescue team to be able to work well protected and concentrated during longer rescue operations even in extreme heat, cold, rain or storm.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\"SeaHelp<\/a>\r\n\r\n \r\n

SeaHelp is the only company in Croatia that is allowed to tow private boats commercially<\/h2>\r\nAfter a rebuild of the boats and equipment there for their future rescue and assistance mission, the stability test for commercial towing operations then followed; Sea-Help is the only company in Croatia that has this certification and is allowed to tow private boats commercially, they said.\r\n
