Designs 363 & 366 - Air Rescue Boats

Design 363

Last week I posted an article about design #370, a World War II Air Rescue or Crash Boat, used to rescue downed pilots during the war. Here are a couple of more designs of the same type, designs #363 and #366, both designed in 1940.

Design 366

#363 was designed for Oxford Shipyard of Oxford, Maryland and #366 for the Seabrook Yacht Corporation of Seabrook, Texas. Multiple copies of each were built.

Principal Dimensions #363
LOA 29'-4"
LWL 26'-3"
Beam 8'-7"
Draft 2'-6"

Principal Dimensions #366
LOA 36'-4"
LWL 34'-3"
Beam 10'-5"
Draft 3'-6"

  1. Well, one of the design #s above next to Principal Dimensions is incorrect.
