Although sailing is normally an exhilarating experience, it’s crucial to be aware of the risks and prepare yourself for a challenging situation, such as extreme weather, an engine fire or falling overboard.
YouBoat’s marine safety equipment can give you peace of mind. What’s more, it could be worth its weight in gold if you’re involved in an accident or other distressing event.
The products are divided into several subcategories:
- Emergency Equipment – vital gear ranging from the Osculati Recessed Emergency Ladder (for man-overboard incidents) to the Seafire FG 150 Automatic Fire Extinguisher, which makes an invaluable addition to your engine compartment.
- EPIRBs & Beacons – with a hi-tech transmitter such as the Ocean Signal RescueMe PLB1 GPS Beacon, you can make your location known to search and rescue services.
