Operational Period: Starting 2021

In October 2020, Sea-Eye purchased an offshore supply vessel (built in 1972) with the support of the United4Rescue sea rescue coalition to convert it for rescue operations.

The design of the SEA-EYE 4 is very well suited for sea rescue operations and provides plenty of space for the first aid of rescued people. The on-board infirmary will comply with modern standards and will be prepared for potential corona cases.

To carry out rescue operations, the SEA-EYE 4 has two cranes which can lower the two speedboats ‘RHIBs’ safely into the water. In the event of an emergency, the RHIBs will approach people in distress, distribute life jackets and evacuate unseaworthy vessels.

The SEA-EYE 4 is scheduled to be transferred to the Mediterranean Sea by early 2021 to save lives as soon as possible.


is currently in the shipyard being equipped for rescue operations.

Our fourth
rescue ship

is the biggest challenge
in our five-year association history.

The SEA-EYE 4 is to come as soon as possible humans in the hardest hours of their lives to the assistance. But to accomplish this, we still need donations for the equipment for the rescue ship.

Will you help us?
