Video: Big Surprise in Small Viking Liferaft Box (Hint: It Seats 200)

When you’re looking at safety equipment for your boat, two things should come to mind: The number of people you need to protect from harm and the space you have on your boat. A new commercial liferaft turns the geometry of those figures on its head. The raft is stored in a box that measures roughly 3 feet wide, 3 feet tall, and 15 feet long. But it expands into a covered raft that seats 200 persons. It also has four electric motors, the better to steer out of trouble. Check out its first-ever deployment at Lauderdale Marina in Ft. Lauderdale. We think the technology in the Viking LifeCraft System will translate very well to private yachts.
