CPR – Coastal Passage Liferaft

The Coastal Passage Liferaft (CPR) from Switlik sets the standard in lightweight high-performance life rafts. Designed with the coastal cruiser, mid-shore sport-fisherman, and day-sailor in mind, the CPR is a large, lightweight and fully featured life raft. This raft is as much “at home” on a mid-sized sloop as it is on a high-performance centre console or even a large sport fishing yacht, as long as the activities warrant coastal performance. This Coastal Passage Liferaft (CPR) has been adapted for the yachting industry, from the original design adopted by the US Coast Guard for their helicopter operations and comes complete with a convertible canopy system offering protection for up to 1140 lbs (equivalent to an average of 6 UK males) and additional stability.
