The MOB Lifesaver attaches to the lifting loop/becket in a lifejacket. When the lifejacket inflates the Lifesaver floats out onto the water and is easy for the rescuer to grab with the boathook. They can then secure the MOB to the boat while they set up their retrieval rig.

Product Information

The one thing that concerns sailors is how to get the MOB in the water back on board if he  can't help himself. Attaching the MOB to the boat while we set up a retrieval rig is key. But on yachts we can't reach down to get a line onto the MOB and even on motorboats with bathing platforms it is very difficult to grab and keep hold of the casualty.

The answer? MOB Lifesavers. We don't go down to the MOB, he comes up to us.

The MOB Lifesaver attaches to the lifting loop/becket in a lifejacket. When the lifejacket inflates the Lifesaver floats out onto the water and is easy for the rescuer to grab with the boathook. They can then secure the MOB to the boat while they set up their retrieval rig.

A Lifesaver is hand made from ultra High weight Molecular PolyEthylene, also known as HMPE (the same material from which Dyneema® is made.) The Lifesaver is spliced into a loop with a Brummel buried tail splice.

  • FLOATS - out when the jacket inflates
  • SIMPLE - grab the Lifesaver with the boathook and attach the man to the boat
  • STRONG - Hi-Vis line will lift over 1 ton!

The simple answer to MOB retrieval.

MOB Lifesavers are endorsed by Hamble Lifeboat. A contribution from every MOB Lifesaver pack sold goes to Hamble Lifeboat to thank them for their help & support.

Please Note - Kru Sport Pro, Kru Sport Pro - Iso, Premier Kru Sport Pro - 180N & Kru Sport Elite jackets do up with a zip that the authorities do not deem to be strong enough if the lift comes from one side only and so they require 2 Lifesavers, one on each lifting becket and the lift needs to come from both sides. Lifesaver customers have been inventive and have found that using a soft shackle to tie the two 'D' rings together means that they can fit just 1 Lifesaver. Another work around - from a sail training organisation who have Lifesavers in their Kru jackets - is for crew to wear a Lifeline at all times, with at least one end clipped round the two 'D' rings.

All Crewsaver, Spinlock, Baltic & SeaSafe jackets require just 1 Lifesaver. The Crewsaver ErgoFits have 2 lifting beckets but only require 1 Lifesaver, you can fit it to whichever side you like. See the How To Fit videos.

Approved for all current models of Crewsaver, Baltic, Spinlock
