Man Overboard Rescue Equipment

Man Overboard Rescue Equipment

The Man Overboard rescue equipment that we use is aimed at the regular cruising sailor.  It doesn't include the top of the range kit such as the Jasons cradle or the MOB recovery raft because these are £500 - £1500 price mark.  I focus on rescue equipment that ranges from a round of drinks - £15, a meal out for two £50 up to an overnight in a hotel £150.  Our rescue equipment fits into 6 different catagories:-

  • Life jacket accessories
  • Throwing lines
  • Ladders
  • Man Overboard Rescue strops
  • MOB Recovery systems
  • MOB Pick up Sails

Within each, I have a range to illustrate the differences between them.  It's normally price related - the more expensive the item the more design it has for the rescue.

Want to try a range of Man Overboard Rescue Equipment?

Maybe you've been on the RYA / ISAF coastal Safety Coarse and found the MOB rescue equipment interesting or perhaps you've just done your Dayskipper or Yachtmaster practicals and run through the MOB procedures.

Want to do more MOB?  If so, we have a couple of options for Man Overboard Rescue training, both of which are free.  All I ask is that I can use any photos I take on the website, social media, magazine articles etc.

Yacht clubs - I can run half day sessions on your yachts as part of your regular sailing weekends.  Why not finish a cruise on Sunday lunchtime and spend the afternoon learning 5 MOB techniques.

Own boat sessions - anything from a few hours to a full day using all the equipment on your yacht. As long as your within a few hours drive of Jct 13 on the M25 I'll come along and you can try anything you want.

If you are interested in trying any of these MOB equipment out yourself then please contact me at or use the contact form.  If you have time, can you add some info on if you are a Dayskipper, Coastal Skipper or Yachtmaster and if you've done the RYA Sea Survival or the RYA / ISAF Coastal Safety course.
