Jon Buoy Dan Buoy

Danbuoy warranty logo

Yachting Australia approved.

The Jon Buoy inflatable Dan Buoy is stylish, compact, and weighs only 3.3kg. The inflatable Dan Buoy is mounted on the pushpit and is easily deployed in an emergency.  It can replace the traditional pole Dan Buoy.

Incorporating a modified manual lifejacket operating system means the Dan Buoy will not inflate if moisture enters the unit, unlike some auto Dan Buoy systems. 

To operate you simply lift the shock cord over the module and throw the unit into the water. As the unit falls the lanyard attached to the cradle will fire the gas cylinder and inflate the Dan Buoy. The lanyard is designed to detach once the cylinder has fired.

After use, the Dan Buoy can be recovered, serviced, and repacked to use again.

The Dan buoy has a light on the top of the pole which automatically activates on inflation. A drogue is deployed when the unit inflates. A whistle is attached to the drogue line.
