Visar Is Seeking Finacial Aid from Sponsors for The Next Generation of Virgin Islands Rescue Vessels

Under the patronage of His Excellency, The Governor, The Board of Directors at VISAR and the team at Oil Nut Bay will be holding a fundraiser on December 3rd to raise funds for two new vessels. VISAR currently operates 2 boats, based in Virgin Gorda and Tortola. Both boats have 18 months left before they need to be retired as Search and Rescue Vessels. VISAR runs solely on private donations made by individuals and local businesses in the BVI, with the majority of our donations coming from the Bareboat Charter community. Since formation VISAR have carried out over 450 search and rescue missions, helping more than 1,200 people in distress and saving over 40 lives. Our 100% volunteer crew and coordinators are ready to accept the call that could save someone’s life and 45 crew members are standing by to respond. Search and Rescue can be a difficult and dangerous job. Our volunteers come from all walks of life, including: accountants, hospitality, marine, IT, lawyers, engineers and architects. A range of corporate membership levels offering brand exposure benefits are available to support life changing search and rescue response.
