The beacon on board is an essential part of the safety equipment to save lives at sea, a hostile environment that requires precautions to be taken in adverse situations. We have to take into account the numerous incidents that occur every year in our waters, which can be the result of an unforeseen event that nobody thought of. The time that elapses between the occurrence of an accident and the location and arrival of the Maritime Rescue units depends a lot on the correct programming and, therefore, the correct functioning of the radio beacons on board.
Among other things, we check batteries, the correct opening of the containers and the operation of the hydrostatic valve as appropiate in these devices.
We are the official service station for brands such as ACR, 3SI, McMurdo, Kannad, Ocean Signal and GME.

A crew of twelve requires a twelve person liferaft or two (2) six person liferafts or a combination of a four and an eight person liferaft.
