General information

  • Our rescue system combines two stages of rescue in one:
    1. Firstly, it connects to the person gone overboard (heaving line)
    2. Secondly, the person is lifted back on board (automatically without muscle effort)
  • Fast rescue: A person can be brought nearer and lifted back aboard in < 3 minutes
  • Easy to use even in difficult weather conditions and under stress
  • Muscular strength is not required either by the person on the ship, or by the person in the water
  • Rescue manoeuvres are operated from the rudder – guaranteeing self-protection for the person/ people on-board
  • The person in the water keeps a safe distance from the ship – no risk of running the person over or hurting him/her
  • Full control at all times: the rescue procedure can be started and stopped, accelerated and slowed down
  • Ready to use – no rearrangements on the ship or on the sails, no time wasted
  • Ship remains under control during rescue procedures and is fully manoeuvrable
