Manoverboard Safety Equipment: Now in stock
TeamO is pleased to announce that from today we are expanding the range of marine safety products that we supply to sailors worldwide. We know that most sailors who visit the TeamO Marine website are looking for lifejackets with our award-winning BackTow Technology system inside, but more and more we find that people need a one-stop safety shop where there are lots of sailing safety products in one place.
From today we are adding the following items to our catalogue:
EPIRB stands for "Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon". The EPIRB works by alerting search and rescue services in the event of an emergency. The emergency alert is sent as a coded message via satellite and have a very high range so are ideal for sailing vessels. An EPIRB is registered to a yacht so that if it is activated the Coastguard receives key vessel information as well as location details that will be needed in a rescue situation.
TeamO has opted to stock the OceanSignal RescueMe EPIRB because of it's impressed 10 year battery life. We also have been recommending OceanSignal AIS units to our customers since 2018 and find OceanSignal's technology to be reliable and good value for money. Find out more about the RescueMe EPIRB here.
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 IC-M25Euro is a slim, lightweight radio with high performance. It is ideal for leisure customers who are looking for a reliable VHF handheld transceiver. TeamO Marine has opted for this radio because we've owned this model ourselves for several years and rate it highly! It's easy to use, buttons are logically positioned so that you cannot accidentally transmit whilst the radio is tucked in to a pocket or stuffed in to a buoyancy aid. We also lost our charger once, and after a quick email to ICOM a replacment charger was purchased dispatched to us in record time, so we rate their customer service!
