    Default Life rafts in Gibraltar

    Was planning on ordering a Seago ISO 9650-2 life raft from SVB. However, since I'll be passing through Gibraltar I wondered if there is anywhere selling them in the area.

    None of the chandleries do, and it seems Marine Safety just do servicing.

    Marine Safety sell various makes as well as servicing. Steve recommended the SeaSafe self righting and his price was best around 4 years ago. http://marinesafetygibraltar.com/

    P.S. One of the Ocean Safety rafts is a rebadged SeaSafe.

    Strange. Will have to email them then as there is nothing on their website at all that indicates that they sell anything.

    Don't know if he actually stocks rafts, most likely gets them in to order. Ours was delivered to Bruce's from French distributor but invoiced via Marine Safety. When it was due for first service last year, no probs being present when it was unpacked, inflated and inspected. Ready for collection next day after 24hr inflation test.

    Interesting. If not able to pick up in Gib, I want delivery to Portugal.

    Did you end up paying VAT considering the invoice was from Gib?

    Can't remember the VAT position but, his price was good. Don't even think about buying from Sheppards chandlery, their prices were plain crazy when we checked.

    P.S. Alternative is to buy from UK and have it delivered by Algarve Express.

    Can also try Gibyachts, the chandlers that opened a year or two ago down in New Harbours.

    Manager Simon is excellent.

    Cheers. Marine safety couldn't be bothered to respond to my email so they can go and do one. Guess I'll buy from elsewhere.
