Smart Rescue Vehicle Panel“From Smart comes the ideal cruiser for crowded Southern California beaches. The Smart Rescue Vehicle is designed for the adventures and tasks that a lifeguard endures on a daily basis, such as first aid, beach patrol, safety and water rescues.”

The vehicle has a capacity of 5 occupants. The driver sits high in a jet-ski styled seating position. The vehicle has a mid-engine layout.

The 800cc turbo Smart engine sits between the front and rear seats that also powers the jet pump in amphibious mode.

The foam rubber seats can be taken out for more utility and rescues.
