Boating Industry recognises Life Cell as 2018 Top Product

Life Cell Marine Safety is proud to announce that Boating Industry has chosen Life Cell as a 2018 Top Product - http://boatingindustry.com/news/2018/05/01/boating-industrys-2018-top-products/. For the fifth annual year they chose 50 of the newest and most innovative products for the marine industry. All of the winners, including Life Cell, stood out from hundreds of nominations for their impact on the industry, innovation and how they advance their product category – or create something completely new.

 

Life Cell is redefining how safety equipment is stored on boats and creating a new category of safety equipment in an attempt to save lives. Life Cell is a buoyant float-free device that can store all essential marine safety equipment and designed by a survivor of a rapid sinking off the coast of Sydney, Australia. It is like combining a life ring and a ditch kit in one device, two items that have undergone little innovation in recent history.

 

Jenny Aiken, CEO Life Cell Marine Safety, is thrilled that Life Cell is gaining recognition in the largest marine market in the world. “Life Cell has had significant success in Australia since it was launched in 2015 and we are pleased that we are starting to get the same traction in the United States” she said.

 

This award adds to other recent milestones such as US boat manufacturers starting to recommend Life Cell, including Alabama based Silver Ships who have included Life Cell on their new Fire / Rescue demonstration boat - http://www.silverships.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/SIL_DemoBoatFactSheet_Digital_2.pdf. In addition, towing franchisees from both Sea Tow and TowBoatUS have begun recognizing the value of Life Cell and installing it on their vessels.

 

Land N Sea, Kellogg and Payne’s Marine Group currently distribute life Cell in North America. Other international distributors assist Life Cell Marine Safety to also make their product available in Australasia, United Kingdom, Europe and the UAE.

Life Cell Marine Safety Partners with Silver Ships, Inc. To Outfit Demonstration Boat

Life Cell Marine Safety Partners with Silver Ships, Inc. To Outfit Demonstration Boat

Sunrise, Fla. (April 19, 2018)– Life Cell Marine Safetytoday announces their partnership with Silver Ships, Inc., an aluminum boat-building organization headquartered in Theodore, Ala., in outfitting a fire/rescue demo boat in collaboration with several other vendors.

 

Life Cell Marine Safety has created a buoyant device that ensures marine safety equipment is safely stored and easy to access during an incident. Silver Ships’ demo boat is equipped with Life Cell’s Yachtsman model, a buoyant device and ditch kit combo. The demo boat’s safety equipment will be stored in the Life Cell flotation device, which will reduce the chance of the items being lost or unable to be found in time should the vessel’s occupants need to abandon the boat. The flotation device also provides a stable platform from which to operate safety equipment. 

 

“We are thrilled that Silver Ships has chosen to install Life Cell on their latest fire/rescue demo boat and in doing so, adopt best practices for storage of marine safety equipment to keep the crew safe,” said Jenny Aiken, CEO of Life Cell Marine Safety.

 

The demo boat is outfitted for firefighting, dewatering sinking boats, providing medical treatment, evacuations and search and rescue operations. The vessel showcases the capabilities and craftsmanship of both Silver Ships and Life Cell and how each participating vendors’ parts and components enhance the vessel’s safety and ability.

 

“We are proud to have Life Cell Marine Safety's products on board to add an extra level of safety to the demo boat,” said Steven Clarke, co-owner at Silver Ships. “Fire/rescue vessel operators often face challenging situations, and including these safety products can give extra peace of mind while they perform their missions.”

 

The demo boatwill debut April 23, 2018 at  FDIC Internationalin Indianapolis, exhibition booth 9247, where conference attendees can tour the vessel. It will also be at the SEAFCAnnual LeadershipConference in Montgomery, Ala. June 25 – 29. Throughout the year, Silver Ships will transport the demo boat and make multiple stops at trade shows and customers' headquarters for customer interaction and test drive opportunities.

A few weeks after the incident I was at a boat show when I saw a guy sitting at the bar wearing a Life Cell shirt. I walked up and started a conversation with him and it turned out to be the inventor, Scott Smiles. I said “mate, you saved my life”.

Imagine you’re away from the coast, you don’t even see land any more. Even worse, imagine that your boat is now taking on water and you don’t have cell phone reception.
