Crewsaver will reveal the Crewsaver ErgoFit Extreme lifejacket at the PSP Southampton Boat Show. Designed exclusively with Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing to meet the specific needs of the ocean racer.


The official launch of the ErgoFit Extreme will take place at the Southampton Boat Show, on stand G104 at 13.30, Friday, September 12, 2014.

"When I am out of the water my team’s safety is my number one concern which is why I choose Crewsaver," said Ian Walker, Skipper of Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing. Ian has been a key player in the development of the Extreme, providing essential feedback to the Crewsaver design team enabling them to develop the highest specification, most top of the range lifejacket for ocean racing.


Based on the Crewsaver ErgoFit lifejacket collection launched in November 2012, the ErgoFit Extreme maintains all of the high specification safety features of the ErgoFit 290N OC whilst providing essential performance attributes for the serious ocean racer. These include the dual buckle system and side waist adjusters, uniquely designed to ensure swift donning -essential if the wind gets up and it’s all hands on deck. Other key features of the jacket include a robust 500d nylon heavy duty cover, chosen specifically for its durability and comfort. A unique hanging loop built into the jacket, makes hanging the jackets below deck as simple and efficient as possible allowing you to focus on the more important things-the racing! Inside the jacket offers some of the highest specification safety features on the market today. This includes unique bladder distribution, providing turning solutions in less than three seconds and allows you to move your arms freely. A built in inflatable chin support tilts your neck back and keeps your airways clear.Crewsaver’s MD Ross Wilkinson adds, " We have worked closely with some of the most elite and professional ocean sailors on the water today to design a jacket exclusively to their needs, we are delighted with the result and the feedback we have had on the jacket and look forward to seeing it out on the race course."
