A revolutionary hybrid that combines the advantages of lifeboats and liferafts in a single solution
The survival craft contains up to four VIKING LifeCrafts with a capacity of 200 persons each. There is built-in redundancy of capacity to that it can exceed the general capacity of the system. Minimum maintenance is required with integrated storage designed for easy servicing. It takes up less room than lifeboats, freeing up deck space.
