AVCG Frankston - New vessel
2 Pier Promenade, Frankston, 3199
In the 2017-18 State Budget, the Victorian Government allocated $600,000 for a new search-and-rescue vessel for the Frankston Coast Guard.
Situated in the local government area of Frankston, the Frankston Coast Guard 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.
The Frankston Coast Guard will receive a new Close Offshore 1 vessel, which is ideal for open water in moderate conditions up to 15 nautical miles.
The new search-and-rescue vessel will enable 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 has been in regular communication with the Frankston Coast Guard to ensure volunteers are provided with the vessels and equipment they need to keep their local community safe on the water.Latest news
