Available In Both Bitt & Flat Mount Installations

C-Hero'S® new patent pending 5 Series - HINGED Rescue Davit line is the perfect blend of features, functionality, & price.  By cranking the standard Harken 35:1 two speed winch, the boom pivots up towards the hinged winch plate. Once topped out to the stopper ball, the entire assembly, boom and winch plate, pivot back towards the rescuer.  This places the MOB front & center, making getting back on board a snap. Available in both Bitt Mount & Flat Mount applications, all C-Hero Rescue Davits can either secure to your vessel's bitt (even one side of an H-bitt) or lock into the Flat Mount's receiving unit, pre installed at your desired location. Thus, making C-Hero suitable for both water and land based rescues.

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.

"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.
