A newbuild ambulance boat was recently handed over to the provincial government of Sorsogon in the Philippines.

The FRP-hulled boat measures 7.6 metres long and is powered by a Yamaha 149kW outboard. The main cabin has space for a patient bed and medical equipment as well as a shock-mitigating seat for the coxswain.

The newbuild was constructed by local workboat manufacturer BangkaPro.
