The Rapid Approach Rescue Cat is the most compact, deploy able, and economical rescue boat on the planet!

This boat was developed in cooperation with fire fighters, rescue teams, and swift water instructors to be the most versatile and cost effective inflatable rescue boat in the industry.      The Rescue Cat will withstand extreme conditions and all types of emergency situations. The paddle cat design has been a popular recreational boat for years. By redesigning it with bigger tubes, integrated thwarts, and the “RAR Rescue Ramp” we now have a very adaptable and versatile craft than works in multiple rescue scenarios.

The main advantage is the cataraft design is superior stability and maneuverability. A team of two rescue personnel can navigate any type of on water rescue with room to bring 4 adults back to safety.
