NEW CREWFIT LIFEJACKET - CELEBRATING 30 YEARS OF CREWFIT
28 August 2014

At the PSP Southampton Boat Show 2014, Crewsaver is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the design of the Crewfit inflatable lifejacket. Worn the world over in all markets and especially popular with recreational boaters; the Crewfit is the only lifejacket many sailors would consider wearing.

But even the best can be improved upon, and after three decades Crewsaver proudly announces the launch of the Crewfit 165N.  This new model brings boaters’ state-of-the-art safety features, the most modern, and robust materials, while also retaining the original, supremely popular easy-to-wear design.

The press and public are invited to the official launch of the Crewfit 165N at the PSP Southampton Boat Show, on stand G104 at 13.30, Friday 12th September 2014.

Crewsaver’s Managing Director Ross Wilkinson comments, “We are proud and delighted that the Crewfit has stood the test of time and is still the choice of many around the world. The new model is even better, keeping users safe with the latest technology, including a unique bladder design providing the ultimate in performance.’

‘It’s what’s inside that counts’ - So what’s new on the Crewfit 165N?

  • New, improved bladder design that reduces wave impact on the face, greatly improves the mouth free board (distance from your mouth to the water) and provides a unique chin support helping to keep your airways clear
  • Increased buoyancy - 165 Newtons (approved to ISO 150N), providing a spin time of around 2 seconds average
  • Lighter weight on the harness version, achieved by a soft loop replacing the stainless steel D-ring
  • The most up-to-date Hammar MA1 and UML pro-sensor operating head which prevents accidental activation by wave splashes
  • ISO approved 12402-3 - the International standard for lifejackets
