Vanguard Totally Enclosed Lifeboats are designed and manufactured to SOLAS 86 regulations & adhere to stringent government requirements.
Totally enclosed lifeboat is designed to be launched by cantilevered platform or gravity davit system. It is fitted with shock absorbing skate / fenders to provide protection to the inboard side of the craft during launching. When an emergency evacuation or accident occurs aboard a vessel or offshore platform, with the hydraulic on-load hook release mechanism, ship crew can release the falls from within the lifeboat when the lifeboat is on water.
The lifeboat can also be used as a SOLAS approved rescue boat* by enhancing the launch and recovery operations.
