Ocean Safety Typhoon International and NeilPryde Sailing at METS
Advances in technology have enabled Ocean Safety to introduce a revised ISO Liferaft container, which is the container option for the ever-popular Ocean ISO liferaft. The updated version is not just lighter but a re-design means it is also easier to handle. Both of these are vital factors to help the raft be more easily launched overboard in an emergency.
Technology has also enabled Ocean Safety to create an additional choice for its Jon Buoy man overboard retrieval range. While the standard hi-viz range Jon Buoy range remains the same, an ultra-high-viz choice is now available using Ocean Safety’s new Glo Lite retro-reflective fabric. Glo Lite significantly enhances the fabric’s visibility so it’s highly reflective to search lights in the dark. As well as presenting other key products from the full range of safety and survival equipment Ocean Safety will support its worldwide distributor network. The company’s team of marine safety experts will be on hand to provide advice to yacht captains and naval architects on bespoke design and inventory layouts for installations on board superyachts, grand prix, leisure, and commercial vessels.

The Ezeedon 4 Suit has been designed for a multitude of watersports and is also available in women’s and junior sizes.
