The aim of this study is to design an alternative rescue outfitting system for saving the castaways from the sea. The proposed outfitting rescue system is capable to board the refugees from the sea in short period of time and to manage the rescue operation in high security level against the possibility of injuries. The study includes the basic calculations of the rescue vessel as well as the design of the rescue outfitting system. The system can be used by similar vessels, which are working on the rescue operations for the refugees from the open sea or coastal areas.
