Auckland Coastguards replacement for LION Foundation Rescue is a high speed foil assisted catamaran designed by Nic de Waal of Teknicraft Design Auckland and built in Wanganui New Zealand by Q-West Boat Builders. The new vessel is an aluminium, live aboard, multi SAR mission capable vessel, designed to operate in the greater Hauraki Gulf out of our base at the Marine Rescue Centre, Mechanics Bay,  Auckland. She will be surveyed to operate in all waters between North Cape and East Cape. The build is progressing well......

Work on the hull has reached the stage where it is rolled onto its keel to work on the superstructure and deck.
Suspended from the crane the inside of the hulls see daylight for the first time. but it will not be for very long.
On her feet for the first time and for the rest of her working life the hull is ready to be rolled back into the factory.
Jigged up for the next phase, superstructure and internal compartments, a huge step forward to launching day.
