Marin Ark 632

Largest marine evacuation system (SOLAS MED approved)
(316, 474 and 632-person capacities)

The Marin Ark 632 is the largest, safest and most cost-effective dry-shod MES in the world. This system features an innovative helical slide path that combines the benefits of a fully enclosed evacuation chute with the natural descent of a spiral slide. So, crew members can even ascend to assist other passengers if required. One of the most dynamic design features of this new system is the integration of a service winch into the stowage unit which allows for the entire unit to be deposited onto a tug or truck during service periods thus in most cases eliminating the requirement for a crane during service.


  • Unique fully reversible 158 person liferaft design
  • Suspended floor for maximum thermal protection
  • Multiple buoyancy compartments
  • Dual spiral slide path for safe, rapid and controlled descent
  • Unique slide path design for crew ascent where necessary
  • Integral service winch eliminates need for crane hire during MES installation and service removal
  • Revolutionary bowsing system and evacuation slide path designed to meet the challenges of the latest modern wide beam vessels
  • Flexible design allows for installation on widest range of vessel configurations
  • Paves way for more deck space - no davits or DL liferafts necessary.
