Ocean Safety, specialist in the worldwide supply, distribution, service and hire of marine safety equipment, has launched a new style container for its Ocean SOLAS Throw-Over Liferaft.

Range Extension

Extending its range of lifesaving equipment for the commercial marine sector, Ocean Safety's new cylindrical GRP container complements the liferaft's existing option.

Universally sized, this option has been designed to fit specifically into the existing cradles and mountings onboard many commercial vessels. Ferries, crew transfer vessels, tugs and superyachts now have the option to be equipped with the Ocean SOLAS Throw-Over Liferafts without needing to upgrade their onboard stowage.

"We're delighted to launch this extension to our liferaft range," says Ocean Safety's managing director, Alistair Hackett.

"We're completely confident that our Ocean SOLAS Throw-Over Liferaft is the best liferaft option for commercial shipping and workboats, but until now many vessels would have had to replace existing stowages to upgrade and install these liferafts.

"With our new option, it's just a case of simply removing the old liferaft and replacing it with an Ocean Safety SOLAS Throw-Over Liferaft."

Ocean SOLAS Throw-Over Liferaft

The Ocean SOLAS Throw-Over Liferaft is built to the more advanced buoyancy of 82.5kg per person and has a dual tube inflation system to meet the MSC.295(87) regulations, ensuring that one buoyancy tube can support the liferaft when at capacity.

Designed for vessels with a freeboard requirement of up to 18m as standard, the Ocean SOLAS Throw-Over Liferaft's large water ballast pockets offer maximum stability and resistance in extreme conditions, protecting occupants from strong winds and rough seas.

To aid access, the Ocean SOLAS Throw-Over Liferaft has an inflatable boarding ramp and, once onboard, the floor is insulated to retain heat, while the retro-reflective tape on the canopy increases visibility to promote rescue.

With the option of SOLAS A and SOLAS B safety packs, the Ocean SOLAS Throw-Over Liferaft can be supplied with a 6, 8, 10, 12, 16, 20 or 25 -person capacity.


A popular option for commercial vessel operators, Ocean Safety offers a liferaft rental service, which ensures the liferafts are always compliant at a fixed cost.

"The rental of liferafts and other safety equipment saves a commercial operation precious time and guarantees a fixed cost," continues Alistair. "With the new liferaft option, there is an even greater range to choose from."
