Lifeboat safety

Lifeboats are subject to stringent maintenance requirements and for good reason: the life of your crew may depend on them. As an authorised service provider, SeaSafe is approved to service and certify over 60 makes of lifeboat and davit systems on behalf of the flag administrations. SeaSafe Marine provides complete safety solutions ensuring that lifesaving appliances meet all compliance requirements and won’t come up short in an emergency.

Our engineers have undergone extensive training according to the recognised international standards and are certified to carry out a full range of statutory services, upkeep and repairs. With service points in 20-plus ports globally, entrusting lifeboat maintenance and testing to SeaSafe Marine also offers significant cost benefits.

Lifeboat System Inspections

SeaSafe Marine is a specialist in keeping your lifeboat systems safe, compliant with the latest regulations and always ready for action. Our services entail meticulous inspection, testing, overhaul and repair of the boats, their launching appliance and release gear. We take care of any unplanned breakdowns and provide annual and five-year statutory services, which are carried out by certified personnel of authorised service providers in full accordance with IMO, SOLAS and regional requirements.

Pro-active Support

Lifeboat safety cannot be limited to office hours. We organise technical and operational support from a dedicated hub that is open around the clock and can rapidly mobilise authorised engineers to key ports globally. Full maintenance history is stored and accessible online, with service due-date reminders for proactive maintenance planning and efficient service scheduling.

Reduced Downtime

While no short-cuts are acceptable when it comes to looking after your lifeboat systems, SeaSafe Marine takes an intelligent approach to preventative maintenance techniques to minimise disruption. For example, we can perform on-voyage repairs and service and perform condition audits and pre-docking surveys to reduce downtime.

Fleet Service Agreements

Owners with larger fleets can enjoy priority benefits and further reduce expenditure by taking out a Fleet Service Agreement. Discounted rates apply for routine and unplanned emergency services, with fixed upfront costs. Tailored agreements can be arranged for statutory services and/or routine planned maintenance. This lets you cut costs without cutting corners.
