Crewsaver celebrates the 30th Anniversary of the Crewfit lifejacket with the NEW Crewfit 165N.
Crewsaver is excited to reveal the Crewsaver ErgoFit Extreme lifejacket at the PSP Southampton Boat Show. Designed exclusively with Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing to meet the specific needs of the ocean racer.
But even the best can be improved upon, and after three decades Crewsaver proudly announces the launch of the Crewfit 165N. This new model brings boaters’ state-of-the-art safety features, the most modern, and robust materials, while also retaining the original, supremely popular easy-to-wear design.
The press and public are invited to the official launch of the Crewfit 165N at the PSP Southampton Boat Show, on stand G104 at 13.30, Friday 12th September 2014.
Crewsaver’s Managing Director Ross Wilkinson comments, “We are proud and delighted that the Crewfit has stood the test of time and is still the choice of many around the world. The new model is even better, keeping users safe with the latest technology, including a unique bladder design providing the ultimate in performance.’
‘It’s what’s inside that counts’ - So what’s new on the Crewfit 165N?
A transparent ‘window’ on the front of the jacket showing the status of the inflator, allowing you to check your lifejacket is in working order without having to unpack and repack the jacket
New, improved bladder design that reduces wave impact on the face, greatly improves the mouth free board (distance from your mouth to the water) and provides a unique chin support helping to keep your airways clear
Increased buoyancy - 165 Newtons (approved to ISO 150N), providing a spin time of around 2 seconds average
Lighter weight on the harness version, achieved by a soft loop replacing the stainless steel D-ring
The most up-to-date Hammar MA1 and UML pro-sensor operating head which prevents accidental activation by wave splashes
ISO approved 12402-3 - the International standard for lifejackets
