Don't go to sea without a proper life raft! An inflatable dinghy is not a life raft and should not be considered a substitute with the exception of inshore and near shore (>3 miles). A proper life raft features water ballast bags for stability, a canopy for protection, righting lines in the case of a capsize, and most are equipped with survival gear. Life rafts are packaged in compact valise bags or hard shell canisters for easy and efficient storage whether on deck or below. The Zodiac offshore life rafts meet the International Sailing Federation requirements making them a great choice for offshore cruising and racing sailors - After all, Zodiac of North America is an official sponsor of US Sailing and both work closely together to provide sailors with the necessary gear for offshore safety. Zodiac life rafts are not only used on sailboats, however, deep sea fishing vessels and luxury power yachts are also equipped with life rafts to ensure safety for everyone aboard as well. Check out the new Zodiac recreational life rafts below - you will find that they are competitively priced which makes offshore safety feasible for all!
