This liferaft represents a new approach based on the latest developments for rescue equipment. It was constructed in accordance with the international standard ISO 9650, Part 1, Type 1 (Offshore), Group A (inflatable from -15 ° C to +65 ° C) and has been certified by Germanischer Lloyd and by the Italian Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport according to Decree 232 from Oct. 2002.
The weight of this liferaft did change marginally as from manufacturing year 2013 in view of the use of the improved lighter canister. The heavier steel cylinder has been retained in this case.
This liferaft is available in 2 versions, one standard version (SeaCurity ISO 9650-1 Group A) and one with the ability to self-righten upon inflation (Seacurity ISO 9650-1/SR Group A). Both versions fully meet the requirements of ISAF OSR 4.20.2 (d) for racing in Category 1 and 2 (mono and multihull).
The raft consists of a three-chamber inflation system: Two superposed buoyancy tubes and a self-righting arch as a support for the canopy. The maintenance interval is 3 years, as the life raft is vacuum-packed inside the canister or the valise.
