The lifejacket: safety first

Whether you are an amateur or a specialist in nautical activities, the life jacket or buoyancy aid is the mandatory product to have on board your boat. The regulations impose it and the life jacket is an essential product to have.

Whatever your type of navigation, depending on the regulations and the equipment you wear, you must make your choice before jumping into the water. Spinlock, plastimo, Helly hansen or Crewsaver, make your choice among our different suppliers. Whether it is foam or inflatable, for children or adults, Nautisports offers a wide selection of life jackets. Safety, comfort, elegance, buoyancy, harness, iso standard, affordable prices, there is bound to be a vest that will meet your expectations.

The different types of life jackets

Depending on the type of navigation you practice, but also on the equipment you wear, you must choose an adapted lifejacket. The first criterion of choice is the distance that separates you from the nearest shelter, i. e. a place where there is a possibility of anchoring, mooring or landing. The regulations indicate :

  • Between 0 and 2 miles from a shelter, the wearing of a vest of at least 50 Newtons is mandatory
  • Between 2 and 6 miles from a shelter, the wearing of a vest of at least 100 Newtons is mandatory
  • Beyond 6 miles from a shelter, a lifejacket of at least 150 Newtons is mandatory
  • Please note that a lifejacket ofat least 100 Newtons is mandatory for children under 30 kg, regardless of the distance to a shelter

Beyond the regulations, there are different types of vests (foam or inflatable). The main advantage of inflatable vests is that they take up very little space compared to dinghy jackets. Among the inflatable vests, you will find different types of activation, manual or automatic. The automatic vest requires regular maintenance and also has a manual release.
