Available In Both Bitt & Flat Mount Installations

The industry spoke and C-Hero listened. You wanted a no frills, low cost, yet effective means of getting a MOB out of the water all while maintaining high C-Her quality requirements. Done. Introducing the patent pending 3 Series - FIXED Rescue Davit series. Once the MOB has been secured in the Standard Rescue Strap, the boom raises and pivots back to the end of the fixed winch plate. This takes your MOB out of water and closer to safety. Available in both Bitt Mount and 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 suitable desired location. Thus, making C-Hero suitable for both water and land based applications.

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

Tech Specs



Our Rescue Davit systems are light enough for one person to retrieve and carry into position. It attached 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 weldes 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.
