Available In Both Bitt & Flat Mount Installations

The Rescue Davit that started it all. C-Hero's® patent pending 7 Series - Swivel represents the high end of our available davits. By cranking the winch, the boom pivots up towards the rescuer. Once topped off, you can turn the side crank to swing the boom left or right, bringing the MOB to the gunwales for an easy recovery.

Complete your davit system with either the standard VR-12 Rescue Pole + Standard Strap or the upgraded HR-12 Rescue Pole + Body Sling. Contact us for pricing.

Patent Pending in US, UK, Canada & Europe

"Yesterday we had an annual inspection....and the Coast Guard, once again, loved your device. I heard them saying that 'this tool should be a requirement'. It worked flawlessly during MOB drills."

Our Rescue Davit systems are light enough for one person to retrieve and carry into position.  It attaches in less than 30 seconds by way of two 2" polypropylene straps, top and bottom, with locking latch clamps for sinching around the bitt.  Rear body back angles steady the unit onto the bitt to prevent rocking. These back angles can be adjusted to accommodate taller and shorter bitts.  The davit bottom is chamfered to clear bitt welds in order to help prevent an uneven installation.  The 7 Series Bitt Mount comes complete with side feet to stabilize the unit during side to side boom operations.
