VIKING S30 liferaft banner


The VIKING S30 is a complete range of liferafts with an extended service interval in all types and sizes. They’re serviced using a combination of annual onboard inspection and standard service at 30 months at a certified VIKING S30 servicing station.

Save time and money

When it comes to liferaft servicing, internal handling takes up a major share of costs and administration. We can help you to determine the right mix of standard or extended service interval liferafts to optimize servicing efficiency and reduce costs.

Full mix-and-match flexibility

With a VIKING Shipowner Agreement, you can combine different liferaft types and service options - and vary the ratio whenever you need to - all under the same terms and conditions. Choose between self-righting, throw-overboard and davit-launchable versions in different sizes. We've even ensured they share the same packaging and rack mounts to make swapping them as easy as can be!

The choice is yours:

  • Standard liferafts throughout the fleet

  • Liferafts with extended service intervals throughout the fleet

  • A combination of standard and extended interval liferafts where appropriate
