The Dacon Rescue Basket is a rugged aluminum rescue basket with soft padding. It has a large float in the mast to prevent capsizing and net covered sides for safety. The fenders rotate for easy "float-in" access from the sea as well as for protection when hauled against the ship side during recovery. The lifting mast folds down for storage and it comes shipped in two halves to keep shipping costs down.

The Dacon Rescue Basket meets the requirements by UKOOA, NMD and various classification societies for use onboard Standby Vessels.
