ORC+ Offshore Cruiser Life Rafts are designed for demanding offshore conditions. The double chamber construction is exclusive to Plastimo and provides exceptional resistance to perforations and abrasion. The patented firing head requires minimal pull on the firing lanyard for easy inflation and deployment—even a child or injured adult could blow the life raft open. Canopy has retro-reflective tape and raincatching gutter. The included equipment package meets ORC requirements and includes: two floating anchors with 33' line, pump, two paddles, floating knife, rescue quoit with 98' line, bailer, two sponges, repair kit, checklist, instruction manual, survival instructions and signal card. Included signaling equipment: three SOLAS handheld flares, two SOLAS parachute flares, two chemical lightsticks, signaling mirror, waterproof flashlight with spare batteries and bulb, and a whistle. Included personal survival equipment: .5 liter water per person, 4.4oz. food rations per person, graduated cup, fishing kit, first aid kit, seasickness pills (six per person) and rainwater collecting pouch.
All Plastimo life rafts include an 18-year warranty. This is unique in the industry and is a testament to the manufacturing methods and quality of the life rafts. Warranty requires life raft servicing every three years at one of Plastimo's worldwide network of service centers.
