370-Person Lifeboats to Cruise Ship

December 14, 2009

Lifeboat and davit manufacturer Schat-Harding has delivered the world’s largest 370-person CRV55 lifeboats and LS45 davit systems, to Cruise Ship.

The lifeboats are lowered directly from the stowed position, so that no outswing is needed, and the entire boat is positioned outside the hull of the ship. The CRV55 is of reinforced construction and has a special lashing system, making it secure in high waves.

The boat is 16.7 m long and 5.6 m wide. Built from Fibreglass Reinforced Polyester using a vacuum technique, the boat weighs 16 tonnes in its stowed condition and 44 tonnes when fully loaded. Two 70 HP diesel engines give the boat a speed of 6 knots, and the catamaran hull and twin rudders provide excellent manoeuvrability.
