Re: liferaft size in hull fitting

Mark, I don't understand your question.

Are you asking for the size of the metal frame which will hold a canister life raft? if so the frames are adjustable depending on the size / number of people the raft is designed to take.

Re: liferaft size in hull fitting

The Lucia does not have a metal frame. The Life Raft stands on the "ledge" of the rear beam/bridge deck. The factory option was either a 6 or 8 man Zodiac raft, I would imagine there is a bit of flexibility with regard to the size.
I can't give the dimensions of the space they use but if you look up the Zodiac 8 man and that will be a minimum acceptable size. We have 6.

Re: liferaft size in hull fitting

I have the height/depth of the locker behind the raft. That should give you an idea of the height of that cut, but I don't know the width.


Raft Dimensions Stowed: 21" Width x 14" Height x 34" Length
