Norsafe is the global market leader in advanced technology lifesaving systems for all types of ships and offshore installations, and has produced over 28,000 boats since 1903. Experts in safety at sea, this long experience and knowledge has provided the foundation for Norsafe’s range of military and professional boats. Designed for the most serious users, the boats can operate away from shore or the mother ship for extended periods of time. Safety and reliability are at the forefront of their design.

Combining superb seaworthiness, maneuverability and high speed, the boats are ideal for all types of assistance, patrols and other special applications. The layout and performance of the boats allow for a wide range of functions. The boats have a low freeboard, a sprayhood specially designed for boarding, and an anti-slip deck surface. They are self-bailing, have ample deck space, a self-righting system and a sturdy foam-filled or inflatable fender.

Norsafe’s boats are designed, built and equipped to comply with SOLAS, DNV Craft or RCD regulations or similar national regulations. Other codes and certification modules can be supplied. The boats are specially designed and constructed to meet the need for fully available, low maintenance, standby and operation.

Norsafe’s worldwide involvement includes in-house production, sales, delivery and service of lifesaving equipment. Its 24/7 service network provides maintenance from over 300 ports worldwide. Norsafe headquarters is located in Arendal, Norway, and production facilities, sales and service offices are spread across Norway, China, Greece, Mexico, Singapore, South Korea, Australia, the US, the UK, Japan, Brazil, the Netherlands and the United Arab Emirates.
