SEACO/Elliot Introduces New Line Of Reversible Life Rafts/Platforms

SEACO/Elliot manufactures and sells a full product line of inflatable life rafts and personnel rescue platforms and related products for oceangoing vessels, offshore platforms, commercial fishing vessels, corporate and commercial aircraft and various military applications.

In its 30 years, Elliot inflatable life rafts have been instrumental worldwide, in saving hundreds of lives at sea. Originally manufactured in Wales, the Elliot life raft was brought to the U.S. in 1958, where it underwent extensive design changes for U.S. Coast Guard and SOLAS testing and approvals. Elliot was awarded USCG and SOLAS approval in 1960.

Elliot has passed the latest USCG and SOLAS 1983 amendments as one of the first U.S. inflatable life raft manufacturers to have approval for its full line of inflatable life rafts, including its 25-person davitlaunched life raft. Also, in 1988 and 1989, the company became the only U.S. manufacturer to obtain multinational SOLAS 1983 Amendment approvals, including the Canadian Coast Guard, U.K. Department of Transport, USSR Register of Shipping, Portugal IGN, and Government of Argentina.

SEACO/Elliot recently introduced its line of new reversible life rafts or platforms and it is the only U.S. manufactured platform with USCG and Canadian Coast Guard approval.

SEACO/Elliot offers sales and servicing facilities worldwide through its extensive network of factory authorized distributors. All Elliot-approved servicing facilities are USCG approved with servicing technicians trained at the factory to insure all Elliot life rafts are serviced properly.

World headquarters—executive offices, manufacturing and servicing facility—are located at Riviera Beach, Fla. The area is serviced by ocean, air, rail and truck transportation within a five-mile radius.
