Search and Rescue


 From Mariner and Mercury outboard engines to AB inflatable boats and Besto Lifesavers, our comprehensive product portfolio is filled with market-leading brands so that we can offer complete and reliable packages for professional rescue services. 

Over the years, we have developed close relationships with major rescue organisations such as the RNLI, SARA, Sidmouth and Southport Search and Rescue Units. All engines are bespoke to customer requirements and our dedicated Research and Development team have produced patented technologies to enhance their equipment which includes the latest Generation 2 Fast PIRS and Capsize PIRS developments. 

Our product range includes: 

  • Two-stroke and four-stroke Mariner and Mercury outboard engines
  • AB and Mercury Inflatable boats
  • Loncin generators
  • Air liftable and salt water pumps
  • Chandlery
  • Besto Life jackets

From VAT exempt charity accounts to outboard test cells, we have the in-house facilities to expertly handle every order from enquiry to despatch and beyond. 

Every engine is test run and PDI'd before being delivered to reduce any down-time with a spares kit available upon request. A demo lake just five miles from Barrus is also available for year-round trials and training courses are offered to all customers; either in our purpose-built training school or at a convenient location. 

We even have a dedicated overhaul workshop and spray booth to extend the life of your investment.
