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.
This liferaft has the ability to self-righten upon inflation. it fully meets the requirements of ISAF OSR 4.20.2 (d) for racing in Category 1 and 2 (mono and multihull).
The available space and the interior height is in this self-righting ISO raft much larger than in the standard ISO raft .This creates a pleasant feeling of space, making a stay in the raft much more pleasant, especially in stormy seas.
The weight of this raft has been considerably reduced due to the use of the new, lighter cylinder and the new canister. This is not valid for the Italian rafts!!
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.
