Seago Offshore ISO 9650 liferafts are designed for extended offshore cruising and racing. The standard is a comprehensive technical specification specifying all the materials used in the construction of the raft. It also spells out a full performance specification covering inflation, launching, material resistance, buoyancy and interior space.
Particular emphasis is placed on the following stability: This is provided by 4 weighted water posckets with a minimum capacity of 220 litres which guarantee complete security even in uneven loading conditions.
Boarding: The specification lays down theat any person wearing foul weather gear and an inflated lifejacket must be able to board the life raft alone. In order to meet this requirement we have added a self inflating boarding ramp with an internal ladder to allow the person to haul themselves on board the raft. In the event of the liferaft inflating upside down there is a righting strop on the underside of the raft.
Visibility: The raft is fitted with a high visibility orange canopy with SOLAS approved retro refelective tape and an internal light and a SOLAS approved external light. The Seago ISO rafts are designed to inflate at temperatures between -15 to +65C with an emergency kit suitable for 24 hours occupancy.
