Such is the confidence in the quality of their product, Plastimo has now announced an 18 year warranty now applies to all Plastimo liferafts manufactured and sold after January 2012.


The French safety company designs and manufactures a selection of rafts for both the leisure and commercial market.

Plastimo’s General Manager Yann Cornec reflected on the evolution of the product “Forty years of liferaft design and innovation by our R&D, local production and in-house servicing have provided us with unique feedback on product durability and patented technology (exclusive double chamber construction)”


The safety company confirms their selection of high-grade industrial materials is essential to the product’s durability, and further impresses by thanking the dedication of their service centres and product development teams. For boat owners, it means an industry leading offering, spreading their budget for critical mandatory safety equipment even further.
