The Avon standard Ocean-going liferaft has many features, including vacuum packing for extra stowed protection, more
internal headroom, easier boarding, greater night time visibility, and a new weighted ladder.
The buoyancy tubes are made of tough heavy-duty nylon, calendered with a specially formulated neoprene, for maximum air
retention and resistance to weathering. Each of the two independent buoyancy tubes is capable of supporting the full
complement the raft has been designed for, whilst retaining the full floor area. The standard inflatable double floor helps to
retain body heat in cold waters.
