Today more than 8.200 vessels have Survitec rented rafts on-board. Renting rafts, rather than owning, is now the preferred solution on-board vessels!

  • No interim loan rafts
  • No local repairs needed
  • No on board assessments
  • No extra costs

All our rental rafts are type and class approved, certificated and ready to use. Our teams around the world work hard to ensure your
rafts are ready when and where they need to be. We will be waiting at your berth with your replacement rental rafts when you need,
ready to go. We offer a variety of class approved, certificated and ready to use Survitec rafts:

  • Option of Annual Liferafts (12 months) or Extended Service Liferafts (30 months) exchange.
  • Throw over and davit launch options
  • 30, 60 or 90-day due-date notifications when your raft needs exchanging
  • 6 – 35-man size options

Additionally, we offer a service completion guarantee, achieved through due date monitoring, proactive service planning, dedicated technical support , giving operators access to their compliance status and safety certificates.



When a 12 monthly service option simply will not suit your operational requirements, Survitec offers the ESR liferaft solution, extending your liferaft service intervals from 12 to 30 months. Then it is no longer required to facilitate a full service and exchange your liferaft annually. The ESR is hermetically sealed with humidity and CO2 sensors, which allows the vessel crew members to carry out their own inspection regularly to ensure total working efficiency.



The Survitec dedicated global support function for all requests, logistics and invoice details means less coordination, administration and most importantly less risk of error.
With over 3,000 marine professionals covering 105 countries and more than 2,000 ports, Survitec is unrivalled with our worldwide customer support network.
