FAQ Life Rafts - Avalon Rafts

Marine safety is one of the most important and often most overlooked areas of boating. Following are answers to some of our most frequently asked questions regarding marine safety. Please contact one of our expert marine safety advisors for further information about all your life raft and marine safety requirements. For quickest response please call us Toll Free (877) 63-RAFTS 877.637.2387 or (310) 549-9665 (24hr day).


Why do ALL boaters need a life raft?

Safety experts estimate that half of all drowning victims die from the fatal effects of cold water, or hypothermia, and not from water filled lungs. Having a life raft aboard your vessel can help you avoid direct contact with the elements that can cause hypothermia, as well as provide you with the supplies you might need in order to sustain life should anything ever happen to your vessel.

What type of Life Raft Do I Need?

Each type of vessel requires a different solution depending on a number of factors. Is the intended use recreational or commercial? Will the vessel be at sea or fresh water boating? There is no single simple answer. Avalon Rafts has been supplying and servicing the highest quality life rafts since 1981. Every life raft we offer is built to the most exacting standards. We search for the top models featuring premium quality materials and workmanship that are designed to save your life in the most terrifying of sea conditions. We offer a FREE analysis of your specific requirements then make recommendations for the most suitable and cost effective solution to your marine safety requirements.

How often should I have my Life Raft serviced?

Each life raft has different servicing requirements. Is your vessel for private recreational use or a commercial maritime vessel? Some models require service every few years, others every year to maintain full effectiveness. Avalon Rafts is approved by U.S.C.G., SOLAS, RINA, Lloyds, ABS, DNV.
