Arancia ace sib and only produced for rescue .SLSA NZ and SLSA AU use them for IRB racing as well as a few other makes.
Zap Cat no bow cover so not good for beach rescue but they are used by the Army as a safety boat good stable platform some kite surfing schools favour them one lifeguard club up in Windsor use two they like them due to low wash at slow speed.
