Molnárka is an engined boat capable for lifting its body almost 4 meters above water, at any point on still water surface. The development of the concept was based on a university tender aiming to design a rescue base that can be optionally placed for sighting, so the rescue procedure can be immediately initiated from water, after notice of emergency.

The multifunctional lifeboat task is to provide the coastal rescue operations mainly in fresh water in such a way that the crew can choose the observation post anywhere on the open-water. By the help of its legs, the boat can lift itself and its crew up to 4 meters above the water level anywhere.The life-saver can begin the rescue of the uncovered person with the same vehicle. To get in the observation position it uses 3 winches. In this way we’ll have a cheap, lightweight and simple construction.
