SOS Marine 2 Person Valise Life Raft SOS-5550
For the 99% of people who spend 99% of their boating time within sight of land, SOS Marine has designed a 2 person life raft that ‘bridges the gap' by offering all the boaters travelling alone or with one other person an easier system to use in a man overboard situation. A spokesperson from SOS Marine said "This is the market we are addressing with our 2 person life raft - being one of the smallest lightest and affordable on the market but with many features found in the larger offshore rafts".
The Valise packed raft includes the Survival Aids - a signaling mirror, fresh water and a mini flares kit.
The Raft is designed to be easily stored being compact and weighing less than 8 kilos.
Although designed for inshore and coastal conditions, the raft has 3 large ballast pockets to improve stability in rougher seas and has a thermal floor to moderate water temperature.
It has been designed for ease of operation - either giving the painter line a good tug or throw in water and it will automatically inflate similar to an auto inflate life jacket.
Maintenance costs have been considerably reduced compared to existing life rafts costs.
Equipment includes: Sea Anchor, Knife, Air Pump, Righting strap, SOLAS reflective tape, 2 SOLAS lights, Rescue Ring and a boarding ladder with buoyancy assist platform.
