2017-10-30 12:27:17

Ocean Safety, part of the 3Si Group will be showcasing their very latest innovations for superyacht safety at the upcoming METS show.

These will include the recently launched Ocean SOLAS Ultralite liferaft, sought after by grand prix racing yachts and carried on each of the Volvo Ocean Race yachts in the 2017/2018 race.

The liferaft is a totally new concept derived from Ocean Safety’s original space-saving Ocean SOLAS Compact liferaft. It uses carbon composite technology to achieve a significant 23% weight saving, a vital boost in the search for speed.

A new compact man overboard safety ladder, deployable from the water, will also be debuting at the show and has already been successfully installed on many sailing yachts.

David Peach, 3Si Sales Director comments, “These new innovations are outstanding additions to the extensive range of safety equipment that Ocean Safety supplies to the superyacht market. We are proud to be a trusted adviser and safety supplier to many world renowned superyacht yards.”
