In case of Trossi free non-emergency maritime assistance, recreational boats in Estonian coastal waters will be provided with easier technical assistance on-site, and/or the vessel will be towed to the nearest port from where repair assistance can be obtained. Advice will be provided on finding a vessel parking space and repair shop.
Maritime assistance is provided exclusively by teams with SAR training and equipment. The entire Estonian coast is covered by our volunteer SAR units.
For assistance, call 112, where you will be connected to the JRCC. If the JRCC considers that this is a non-emergency maritime assistance situation, the call will be routed to the Estonian Trossi 24/7 center. From there, a maritime rescue unit available in the area will be sent to provide maritime assistance. For assistance, a member of the Swedish Sea Rescue Society can also call the Trossi 24/7 center at +372 5555 3434.
Trossi non-emergency maritime assistance service is available from May to October.
