- Ideal for power boating & coastal sailing -
Life Jackets with 150 N buoyancy are suitable for coastal areas and are very popular with motorboaters. When wearing "normal" everyday clothes, they are safe in the event of unconsciousness, as they keep the wearer on the back and ensure that mouth and nose remain above water. In an emergency, inflatable life jackets are filled with CO2 either manually or automatically when they come into contact with water. A manual or semi-automatic life jacket may be the right choice for you if you want to make sure that the life jacket is not accidentally activated in the event of splashing water.
Thanks to the comfort of movement and their light weight, automatic or semi-automatic life jackets are the best solution for continuous wearing on board and for experienced dinghy sailors.
Caution: If the wearer is unconscious or severely dsitressed when falling into the water, a life jacket that can be released manually does not provide adequate protection.
All automatic life jackets can be converted into a semi-automatic life jackets. For example, you can use an automatic life jacket manually when paddling and convert it back to automatic mode when sailing.
