Recovering a man overboard can be an extremely hazardous operation for both the crew and the casualty, regardless of vessel size. The Jon Buoy MOB range is designed to aid in this operation, by increasing vital visibility and drawing attention to the MOB and will also offer protection to the casualty leading to reduced casualty time before recovery, for a more positive rescue outcome.
The Jon Buoy range also incorporates innovative retro-reflective Glo Lite technology.
Glo Lite significantly enhances the visibility of the hi-vis fabric, making it highly reflective and increases perception during dark conditions, thus aiding location.
The inflatable Jon Buoy Danbuoy is stylish, compact and weighs only 3.9kg. It can be mounted on the pushpit and is easily deployed in an emergency. In the event of a man overboard, simply unclip the unit from its mounting bracket and throw; the Danbuoy then automatically inflates. It replaces the traditional Danbuoy and is also fitted with a light and whistle.
