This type of liferaft is designed for the use onboard of boats navigating mostly within the 12 nm zone off the coast. like e.g. the Baltic Sea.
SeaCurity Coastal liferaft complies with the standard of the Italian market which defines the requirement for a coastal liferaft by a decree issued in 2009. The Italian Decree is based on ISO 9650 requirements in all material aspects.
The rubberized fabric does not only fulfil the ISO 9650-1 requirements but as well the much stricter regulations of SOLAS.
The liferaft has no canopy and no interior or external lights but is otherwise built up to the same standards than our ISO types of raft.
In order to raise the freeboard of the liferaft the diameter of the double tubes has been slightly increased. Boarding is still very comfortable through the inflatable boarding ramp.
The maintenance interval is three years in view of the vacuum packing inside the canister or the valise.
For the Coastal liferaft 2013 we have developped a new canister in order to save weight. Further more the emergency kit does not contain any longer 3 hand flares.
