C-Hero® Rescue Davit

Part of the C-Hero® complete Man Overboard Rescue System
Manufactured by Harken Industrial

Part No. IN144.6FT

The Rescue Davit is a portable lightweight man overboard lifting davit that quickly attaches to any bitt on a boat. The straps and brackets on the back of the unit allow customization for any bitt. The davit is light enough (only 17.2 kg or 38 lb) for one person to retrieve and carry into position. It attaches to the bitt in less than 30 seconds. One small person on deck can hoist a 159kg (350 lb) person aboard using the included Radial winch. The boom is long enough to clear tires and fenders; the worm gear controls the boom swing.

Constructed of anodized marine-grade aluminum and stainless steel to withstand harsh marine environments.

Use the Rescue Davit with the VR 12 Rescue Pole, sold separately, to complete the system. C-Hero model: VR-12 Rescue Pole and Rescue Davit are Type Approval Certified.
