Yachting RescYou™ Liferafts RescYou™ Liferafts

VIKING's yachting liferafts are often rated best by independent sources e.g. in magazine tests


Our liferafts for the yachting sector are constructed from natural rubber which is stronger and more flexible than other materials. They are durable and can be stored either in a high polished sturdy storage container or in a handy portable valise.

VIKING makes yachting liferafts using the same processes as liferafts for passenger and cargo vessels, ensuring sturdy, reliable quality.



Special design features
VIKING's yachting liferafts are designed with large openings for improved visibility and to allow for helicopter rescue directly from the liferaft.

VIKING RescYou™ liferafts have a recommended 3 year service interval unless otherwise specified by local regulations.
