Although it would have been lower on my list of must-see boats had I attended the 2014 Miami International Boat Show a couple of weeks ago, I would have made sure to check out the “ultimate rescue vehicle” despite the fact that it wasn’t of the go-fast variety. There’s no denying my curiosity to see what the future holds for the rescue boats that many of us may need assistance from one day.
In conjunction with the organization’s celebration of three decades of service to the boating public, Sea Tow Services International, Inc., the nation’s leading marine assistance provider, had the 24-foot project boat assembled by one of its franchise owners on display in a SeaStar Solutions slip at the boat show’s in-water Sea Isle Marina location.
