Liferaft solutions for fishing vessels

Ever since local pioneer and visionary Tage Sørensen (1915-2016) founded VIKING as a manufacturer of liferafts, providing cutting-edge liferaft solutions to the commercial fishing industry has resided at the very core of our DNA and heritage.

Serving as the primary means of evacuation on both large pelagic trawlers, coastal fishing boats and every type of ship in between, our wide range of liferafts and accessories caters to all applications, conditions and regulatory requirements.
