T/V Gray Manatee

Live Shipboard Firefighting & Emergency Rescue Training Facility

At the heart of the Fire & Safety Group of the Academy is the T/V Gray Manatee, an innovative 140 ft. LOA shipboard firefighting simulator, designed by our very own engineering staff specifically for marine firefighting training.

The T/V Gray Manatee is located inside Port Everglades adjacent to BSOFD Station 6 and within walking distance of all berths making the location ideal for training on vessel turnaround days. The T/V Gray Manatee incorporates use of live fire training in a realistic scenario giving mariners the experience of real smoke and heat while performing and practicing real-life shipboard firefighting tactics.

In 2018, Resolve Maritime Academy will be unveiling a brand new shipboard firefighting and emergency rescue training facility, designed by our very own training experts. The new facility will be available for courses in Q2 of 2018.
