After an incredibly successful Seawork show, Marine Fire Safety; specialists in firefighting and lifesaving equipment, has secured their first order for a new 14 person ISO liferaft.
The hire agreement, which was established at last week’s show, will see a new Seago 14 person ISO liferaft delivered and installed on board Southampton RIB Charter’s brand new Highfield Patrol 860.
Akis Zissis, Managing Director at Southampton RIB Charter comments, “The arrival of the 14 person raft, presents a huge opportunity to boost our income here at Southampton RIB Charter. Until now, we have been restricted to carrying a maximum of 10 passengers on our charters, however with this new liferaft, we can now take an additional two passengers per charter and have the option of having an additional crew member whilst carrying just one raft. This is a huge advantage for us as a business.”
Chris Waterman, Technical Sales Manager at Marine Fire Safety comments, “The arrival of the 14 person ISO liferaft fulfils a demand in the market that has been apparent for quite a few years. We are excited to finally be in a position, to offer it to both our workboat and charter customers here in the UK. This option will give many companies the opportunity to increase their turnover, which in turn will see them cover their liferaft hire costs quite quickly.”
Seago’s new 14 person ISO liferaft is now part of Marine Fire Safety’s liferaft portfolio and is available for purchase or hire.
