The Monterey Bay Veterans’ (MBV)60 foot boat, Freedom, successfully ran sea trials for the Lift to Freedom (L2F) on August 17th, 2014.
L2F is Freedom’s custom designed submersible dive platform which allows for simultaneous, safe launch and retrieval of multiple physically challenged divers, including those wheelchair bound.
Freedom boasts many unique features fitting her mission. However, the L2F system designed by renowned marine engineer and diver Chris Delucchi and fabricated by Sierra Designs is the crown jewel of of this special vessel.
