  • Fluorescent yellow canopy and ballast bags for enhanced visibility from a distance.

    access from boat and helicopter for evacuation from within.
  • Viewing port for cross ventilation and view of the horizon.
  • Insulated floor provides extra protection against hypothermia.
  • Rain collector
  • Internal and external lifelines.
  • Approved for inflation in -15oC to +65oC
    The VIKING RescYou™ liferafts for yachting provide double security for passengers as they are equipped with two individual buoyancy chambers, each having sufficient buoyancy to carry the weight of the number of persons which the liferaft is designed to accommodate.
    Made from natural rubber and acrylic/silicon coated nylon.

Valise or canister?

Viking liferafts are available in either a valise or a canister. When possible, a canister is recommended to offer the best protection against wear and tear and the elements. A canister can be left on deck or mounted in the stern of a sailing yacht. A liferaft in a valise should be protected from the elements and care should be taken to keep it clear from sharp objects. It will need to be stowed in a location that permits it to be brought on deck quickly and easily.
