Rescue Basket for MOB recovery in tough conditions

When at sea, your crew must be prepared to handle all possible emergency situations, including man overboard scenarios. Having high-quality rescue equipment is of the utmost importance for vessels of all sizes. Dacon Rescue Basket is a power-assisted rescue system suitable for most vessels and ideal for those with little deck space.

Made to withstand the powerful forces of the North Sea, the Dacon Rescue Basket is one of the most stable and rugged rescue baskets on the market. Its aluminium construction makes it strong enough to hold multiple people at once – ideal for mass rescue of people in a conscious state. The basket is easily operated using a deck crane.

    Benefits of the Dacon Rescue Basket

    Available in three different sizes

    The rescue basket is available in three different sizes, holding either 4, 6 or 8 people at once. Choose a system that suits the needs and size of your crew and vessel.


    Easy entry for individuals being rescued

    A great benefit of a Dacon Rescue Basket is that entry from the water requires less effort, compared to many other baskets on the market. During operation our basket will maintain a low floating position, and floating into the basket thereby requires less effort.


    Protects vessel

    At sea, you may have to deal with tough wind and big waves. During a rescue operation, the rescue basket often ends up being hauled against the side of the vessel – which can be damaging to the ship side. The fenders installed around the Dacon Rescue Basket play an important role in preventing this.


    Convenient storage

    Our basket has a foldable lifting mast that can be folded or raised in just a few seconds, without the need for extra equipment. This allows for easy storage onboard the ship.
