Crewsaver, a world-leading manufacturer of marine safety equipment, are delighted to announce that they have once again been selected as the Official Safety Equipment Sponsor for Southampton Boat Show 2019.

As part of this sponsorship, Crewsaver will provide the Boat Show with the essential safety and rescue equipment they require to stay safe on the water. This includes man overboard (MOB) rescue devices such as horseshoe buoys, throwing strops and rescue lines. Visitors heading out onto the water will also see Crewsaver mark buoys marking out the various activity zones.

During the first year of sponsorship, Crewsaver supplied the Boat Show with lifejackets from their popular Fusion 3D range. The Crewfit 180N Pro lifejackets are used by event staff and guests to stay #LifejacketSafe when out on the water. Now a year on, Crewsaver have serviced these lifejackets to ensure the team are not only safe, but also compliant with mandatory regulations.

Mark Ring, Head of Events, commented: "We are delighted to be partnering with Crewsaver for the second year running as the official safety equipment partner of the Southampton International Boat Show. Crewsaver have been a long-term supporter of the Show and we welcome the opportunity to use their expertise and market-leading products to promote safety on the water."

As champions of the #LifejacketSafe campaign, Crewsaver continue to lead the way in lifejacket safety. The sponsorship opportunity will serve as a great platform to promote the campaign at integral points around the show. This will include issue 2 of the popular #LifejacketSafe newspaper which will be available free-of-charge to all visitors of the show.

Hannah Burywood, Marketing Manager at Crewsaver, said: "After a very successful partnership last year we are thrilled to once again be selected as the official safety equipment sponsors of the Southampton Boat Show. We are excited to introduce our new market-leading ErgoFit+ lifejacket, which became available to the market in May this year and is the result of over 60 years of pioneering lifejacket development. We will also be announcing a second collaboration during the show which brings with it the opportunity to win a one-of-a kind branded lifejacket - watch this space!"
