Euro Offshore is a company based in Holland that imports and distributes lifesaving equipment for the professional offshore market. With over 20 years of experience, Euro Offshore is one of the top leaders in the production of offshore products for the professional and leisure market. Our workplace is situated in Werkendam, near the port of Rotterdam. Here we develop, manufacture and repair all lifesaving products. Whether it is a rescue boat, life boat, Rib or freefall boat, our highly qualified personnel have the skills and passion to produce the perfect boats for every client.
The International Convention for the Safety Of Life At Sea (SOLAS) dictates that every ship has to have enough lifeboats for every person on board. For this reason the development of lifesaving equipment has seen a enormous growth. Many different lifeboats are available; a (fast) rescue boat, enclosed lifeboat, partially enclosed lifeboat and freefall boat. Euro Offshore distributes many lifesaving products, suitable for all thinkable conditions.
To escape from a vessel or platform, the freefall boat is the safest and quickest way. The high positive forward motion of the freefall boat means that it hits the water far away from the vessel or installation. Passengers of the freefall boat are safely secured in the enclosed vessel and the boat itself is fireproof, thanks to the water-spray system. Due to longitude bulkheads and transverse bulkheads, the freefall boat has a very strong hull. Extra strengthening in the bow area absorbs the forces while diving into the water. The freefall lifeboat can endure rough sea conditions, to assure the safety of the crew inside. Euro Offshore also provides davit systems for all freefall boat products. With a maximum drop height of 25 metres and a maximum capacity of up to 40 persons (both depending on the size of the boat), the freefall boat of Euro Offshore is one of the safest and quickest ways to escape from a dangerous situation.
