Product details

After intensive market research and support for several rescue testing services, the decision was made on this high-quality rescue island. It fulfills all specifications according to ISAF and ISO 9650-1 and is therefore also approved as an equipment (with extra grab bag) for international regattas of the category \ "0 \".

We would need a full spec rescue island for an upcoming Atlantic crossing. Dimensions, weight, spec and price performance ratio are optimal for us

Flag of English Dear Mr./Ms, we are about to order a life raft (55294) and we would like to add up a grab bag. Regarding that we have a "few" questions: 1) is the life raft delivered directly from production or from you? - in other words; is it completely new or not? 2) is the grab bag packed into the life raft before delivery? 3) How much extra will the grab bag cost? 4) How do we order the grab bag included? We look forward to hearing from you Yours sincerely Jesper and Jane
