The VIKING IBA (Inflatable Buoyant Apparatus) Liferaft ­is a rugged and durable safety craft solution for use on commercial vessels operating in US coastal waters.

Ensuring that on-board evacuees are kept safe and out of contact with the water, the VIKING IBA is an excellent and fully USCG compliant alternative to traditional life floats and rigid buoyant apparatus that may keep evacuees afloat but allow partial immersion.

The open reversible, IBA liferaft is intended for evacuees ­who are likely to be exposed to bad weather conditions only for a short period of time before being located and retrieved. Fully reversible with a­floor­placed between the two buoyancy chambers.

This product number is for the­12 person IBA. For other sizes, see the variants.
