EV liferaft 6 person valise pack Offshore

I am posting a EV liferaft for sale. This is a 6 person life raft in a soft valise pack

EV life rafts are made in Italy, and up there with Viking and Switlik in quality, much better then Plastimo or Revere. This is a Level A Solas Offshore pack

This raft has been onboard my boat since 1990, and was stowed with its own canvas cover.

I pulled the raft off my boat , unpacked, and inflated it. Absolutely no problems. The raft held air for over 24 hours. I replaced the batteries in the Kit, deflated the raft, and repacked. I did not replace the flares, since there were still in there original package and looked brand new. I keep my own ditch bag with more flares. The water in the raft's kit, along with first aid kit, sponges, bailer, flashlight and so forth was fine. So I just repacked those items. In addition to the instruction kit insides the raft , I have the original manufactures owner manual. One thing to be noted in the EV's owner manual, it states with proper care, the raft has a unlimited life span.

Now. . ...is this a certified service? no. . ... But it is what a certified service company would do. You will have to make your own call if you want this to be certified serviced.

Attached is some photos showing the unpacking and inflating. Just so everyone understands, Yes. . ..the raft is repacked and ready to go.

Liferaft is located in Panama City, FL, a couple hours driving east of Pensacola FL.

I can pack the raft onto a half pallet and set it up for shipping, but you need to make your own shipping arrangements. THe EV internet site states the raft weighs 116 LBS, so figure that into your shipping arrangements. Of course the raft can be picked up. AND...... I occasionally drive over the Jacksonville FL, or up to Western side of South Carolina, if you want to meet me somewhere.

Re: EV liferaft 6 person valise pack Offshore

Just found out, figured out you can ship this via Fedex regular shipping. With Fedex it has to weigh under 150lbs. SO.......if you are in the US, you can probably figure out your own shipping cost using a zip code of 32401 for shipping point. And use 120lbs (just to be on the safe side)
I will take the raft down to a Fedex shipping office to send it out.

Re: EV liferaft 6 person valise pack Offshore

Hi, I am interested, as I want a canister mount, can you tell me the model #. I would make an offer if I can get a canister to fit.

I would a canister for an EV raft but not sure if it would work.
