We would like to wish all our customers and their families a Merry Christmas and a safe and prosperous New Year.

Liferaft and Lifejacket sales Australia

The purchase of a liferaft should not just be a click of a mouse button on a web shop.  When a liferaft is launched in an emergency it will probably be the middle of the night in a storm.

It has to work as there are no backups.

 

Manufacturer.

We have carefully chosen the brands of liferaft we sell and support.  Zodiac, Viking and Ocean safety have been designing, testing and manufacturing liferafts for over 40 years.

We do not sell liferafts online as there are many things to take into consideration before purchasing. 

Viking Rescyou liferaft

Stowage.

Where you will stow the liferaft is very important. Will it be below deck or above. Maybe a stainless-steel cradle could be an option with the liferaft mounted on its side on a railing.
If the life raft is to be stowed below deck in a valise can it be easily launched in rough conditions and are all the crew strong enough to carry the liferaft on their own if someone is injured.

Capacity

Another important factor is how many crew will normally be on board when the vessel is cruising offshore. Liferafts are manufactured in 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 person sizes. The wrong size liferaft would be very uncomfortable or could even dangerous in rough conditions.

Servicing

Are there approved service stations in your local port? If you are heading to distant shores is the no-name brand you have found at a great price online supported internationally.

There has been a flood of grey import vessels into Australia over the last 10 years and many have arrived with a liferaft. A quick search online will find plenty of second-hand liferafts at a steal but there are no approved service stations in Australia.
