Mornington is a seaside town on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, Australia, located 57 km south-east of Melbourne's central business district. Mornington is situated on the eastern side of Port Phillip.   38° 13.41 S, 145° 03.43E


Hastings is also a seaside town on the Mornington Peninsula, situated on Westernport.   38°18.27° S, 145° 11.25 E


When our rescue service was formed in 1980, the Steering Committee was tasked with the job of investigating the best type of vessel and the best manufacturer in Australia. The Committee reported back they would highly recommend the Shark Cat company, later to become Noosa Cat. Today VMR still boast 3 state of the art Noosa Cats. With over 39 years experience in marine rescue, VMR still believe Noosa Cat to be the best multi hull vessel available for the type of work we do.

Our current fleet of vessels is valued well over $800,000.
