Enclosed lifeboats for offshore professionals

VIKING Norsafe totally enclosed and partially enclosed lifeboats keep your personnel and passengers safe and protected. Our enclosed lifeboats are used all over the world, both on ships and offshore installations, and they are designed and manufactured exclusively at VIKING's production facilities to guarantee product quality.

VIKING Norsafe lifeboats offer outstanding safety and performance in demanding conditions. Even if damaged or fully flooded, the lifeboats are self-righting and virtually unsinkable.
