Survitec will provide Dutch sailing charter specialist Tallship Company with 23 Extended Service Rafts (ESR) over a five-year period, with an option to extend for a further five years.

The contract, worth more than €160,000, will see the new equipment from Survitec’s Dutch distribution arm replace existing DSB inflatable rescue boats on Tallship Company’s charter vessels.

“We have a lengthy relationship with the Tallship Company extending back many years and replacing its DSB rafts with ESRs means it is keeping up to date with the latest in safety and survival technology,” explained Marc Boekhoud, Survitec business development manager.

24-month cycle

The certified, type and class-approved rafts will be replaced every 24-months to ensure compliance with Dutch regulations, which stipulate that on-board medical kits must be regularly refreshed.

This new cycle also synchronises more harmoniously with the sailing season and where the vessels will be located during the exchange period.

“Adapting the service cycle to their needs shows that we are adept at offering bespoke solutions to our customers and working with them to find the right result,” Marc added.

Jan Bruinsma, owner of the Tallship Company, commented: “We needed to upgrade our liferafts and make investment in the safety element of our business. While we had an existing relationship with Survitec, we still considered other options, but its ESR proposition proved to be the most suitable for our needs, particularly as we are able to replace them more regularly to keep compliant.”

Survitec will be on stand PO51 at Seawork International.
