Romanian maritime search and rescue (SAR) organisation ARSVOM has taken delivery of two newbuild vessels from Estonian builder Baltic Workboats.

Recently added to the ARSVOM fleet are Theia, a 16-metre patrol and SAR boat (pictured), and Gaia, an 18-metre oil spill response vessel. Gaia is a near-identical sister of Maia, which was delivered by Baltic Workboats in 2020.

Both vessels are also equipped for firefighting duties and can reach speeds in excess of 25 knots.
