Crewsaver is thrilled to announce the launch of the new Euro 100N lifejacket designed specifically for children. This launch coincides with fun and fresh updates to the existing range to bring you the complete Children’s Lifejacket Range.  This range has something to offer no matter what level you are operating at, so whether you need something for general in-water play, dinghy sailing or even ocean sailing, there is a Crewsaver to suit.

The new Euro 100N is your perfect ‘all-rounder’ and great for inshore use including sailing, powerboating, kayaking and swimming. The 100N of buoyancy reduces fatigue during general in-water activities whilst the inherently buoyant super soft foam provides a comfortable fit. Available in four sizes each complete with dual crotch straps and waist adjusters to provide a suitable fit with easy donning. The vibrant yellow colour combined with reflective tape provides good onboard and in-water visibility.

The children’s lifejacket range also includes the revamped Supersafe 150N foam lifejacket. The Supersafe 150N is perfect for those venturing further offshore including ocean sailing and is one of the only foam lifejackets for children in the 150N ‘Offshore’ rated category. The increase in buoyancy results in quicker spin times, increased collar stability and greater mouth freeboard (distance from water to mouth). Complete with a built-in safety harness, the Supersafe 150N accommodates the use of a safety line which is recommended when sailing in rough conditions or during night sailing.

Entry level to the range is the Spiral 100N which is available in yellow and orange. The inherently buoyant foam lifejacket is great for inshore use including surface watersports and swimming.

For the older child, there is the Crewfit 150N Junior lifejacket. As featured in Crewsaver’s popular Fusion 3D range, this automatic gas lifejacket incorporates unique Fusion 3D technology for the ultimate in comfort. The Crewfit 150N Junior is a great option for older children and is designed to inflate automatically when in contact with water. The unique 150N bladder design includes a peninsular chin support and it offers the most advanced performance solutions available to date. In addition, the lifejacket comes with a helpful indicator window which externally displays the status of the inflator firing mechanism.

Safe at Sea – Oliver’s Adventure Interactive safety message, encouraging children to wear lifejackets:  Crewsaver has created a great children’s storybook titled Oliver’s Adventure. This fun storybook follows the adventures of Oliver, a young sailboat who looks up to Rory the speedboat. SPOILER Rory decides not to wear a lifejacket and gets into trouble. This book was designed as an interactive tool to help parents teach their children the importance of lifejackets in a fun and interactive way. All new children’s foam lifejackets will come with the storybook and the characters can be found printed on both the Supersafe 150N and Euro 100N lifejackets.
