Marine Evacuation System (SOLAS MED approved)
(109-person capacity)

The Marin Ark 109 is the logical choice for evacuation of passengers from smaller ferries with low freeboards. Using one Marin Ark liferaft together with a slide, the Marin Ark 109 MES can be launched, inflated and bowsed in 145 seconds. Better yet, all 109 passengers can be evacuated in 15 minutes. Featuring the same fully reversible liferafts as the Marin Ark 430, the 109 has the versatility to be deployed without a slide for very low embarkation heights, or together with two alternative slide configurations for freeboard heights up to 7 metres.


  • Liferafts are fully reversible, ensuring system inflates upright every time
  • Multiple slide configurations to suit lower freeboard heights
  • Designed for open deck and between deck evacuations
  • Suited to vessels with freeboard up to 7m.
