AVCG Carrum - New engine replacement

Launching Way, Carrum, 3197

In the 2017-18 State Budget, the Victorian Government allocated $70,000 for new engine upgrades for Carrum Volunteer Coast Guard's (AVCG Carrum) CG7 search-and-rescue vessel.

Situated in the local government area of Kingston, AVCG Carrum plays an important role in the safety of water users in the local area, by responding to marine emergencies and raising community awareness about marine safety.

AVCG Carrum received two new Suzuki engines (300h/p) for its CG7 vessel, which are now in use.

These engine upgrades will ensure the search-and-rescue vessel meets commercial standards, enabling the committed and dedicated volunteers to continue to service their local community and assist other emergency service agencies.

The Marine Search and Rescue office within Emergency Management Victoria is in regular communication with AVCG Carrum to ensure volunteers are provided with the vessels and equipment they need to keep their local community safe on the water.
