At Euro Offshore BV a lifeboat davit is a platform davit which is mounted on the deck of a ship and that lowers the boat into the water with the help of its own weight. The platform lifeboat davit is designed to do this in one continuous motion without delays. A lifeboat davit can be purchased in different sizes with different capacities in order to accommodate all types of lifeboats, big or small. As an extra safety measure the lifeboat davit can be operated both electrically and manually in the event of a power failure.
