Fibrelight Man Overboard Recovery Products


Fibrelight is exhibiting at Seawork International for the sixth consecutive year, demonstrating its growing range of Man OverBoard recovery products.

This year, Matt Adam, Fibrelight’s Business Development Manager, has been conducting water-based demonstrations of Fibrelight’s award-winning MOB recovery cradle, showcasing its features to the assembled crowds at the exhibition.

The cradle is in use globally and is fast becoming the choice for professionals, as Tim Craig-Harvey, Head of Business Development explains: “It is the lightest and least expensive product on the market, can be used by one person and requires no servicing.”

Seawork is also the opportunity for Fibrelight to demonstrate the company’s latest product on the market – the self-recovery ladder, which has been accepted by the MCA (UK Flag) for use on all vessel types. Based on the best-selling emergency ladder, which is in use across the world by a number of cruise operators, the self-recovery ladder is designed for fishermen who find themselves overboard after an accident. Craig-Harvey continues “We’ve had 50 self-recovery ladders recently delivered to the West Dorset and East Devon FLAG (Fisherman’s Local Action Group) with assistance from European funding, so it is already proving popular since it was launched.”

So, why Seawork International? As Craig-Harvey explains, “It’s the key maritime exhibition that brings together more than just fisheries but all the professional users of vessels across the UK and international groups of people – it’s not just the UK. It’s an exhibition where a lot of our distributors come, so it gives us the opportunity to talk about our products to a very wide audience. It’s Seawork International and it’s just that, international.”
