Safety and comfort on board

I like this headline as safety and comfort a long way is very close connected. Let me start to comment on the ships safety equipment and then I will be talking about the equipment that adds to our comfort, and as a matter of this, also to our safety.

Because S/Y Thyra is a commercial sailing vessel approved to carry up to 12 passangers a lot of safety regulations has to be followed. Some of the following things might seem a bit overkill, but that is the reason. This is what we got:

SOLAS “B” approved Viking liferaft 16 persons
2 SOLAS approved lifering, one with light, one with line
6 SOLAS approved Baltic inflatable lifevests
3 SOLAS approved Viking inflatable lifevests for kids
Emergency power for radio and navigational lights
MOB brace
Sufficient amount of pyroteknik
AIS-SART
EPIRB
Lifelines from cockpit to front
Hookingpoints for lifelines I cockpitt

Max Power rejectable bow truster
Ebersprecher D5 heater
3,4 m Humber RIB
9,9 HP Mercury outboard – Will be updated to Yamaha 25 HP
