Carriage requirements

  • SARTs are required on all IMO SOLAS vessels on international voyages:-
    • One on 300-500GRT
    • Two if over 500GRT
    • One SART per every four liferafts on ro-ro passenger vessels
  • Nationally mandated vessels, including fishing vessels, passenger craft, commercial workboats, etc
  • Most Super and Mega yachts are required to carry a SART, especially if covered by the MCA code of practice, which is recognised by many countries.
  • Voluntary fit vessels will also benefit by carrying a SART

The SeaSafe S100 SART is designed to assist in the rescue and recovery of liferafts and survival craft. When switched on, the SART remains in a standby mode until automatically activated by an X Band Radar sweep from any vessel in the vicinity. The SafeSea S100 transmits a series of pulses which are displayed on the ships Radar as a line of dots, providing a bearing to the survival craft.
The activation controls are identical to those on theSafeSea E100 EPIRB, making use by unskilled operators much easier
