Coastguard is excited to partner with our good mates at Lotto and Emirates Team New Zealand, to build a brand-new fleet of rescue boats for communities across the country.

Built using funding from Lotto NZ players, the fleet of Rayglass support boats have been quietly powering alongside the America's Cup yachts, making sure the races go ahead smoothly. Now the racing is over, the real winners will be communities across the nation, as the vessels are rebranded and refitted ready to save lives at sea.

From supporting Emirates Team New Zealand on the water to saving lives at sea, this fleet has been built for you, New Zealand.

New rescue vessels for you, NZ

The team at Lotto chats with Tom from Emirates Team New Zealand and Luke from Coastguard about what these new boats mean for communities nationwide.
