British marine safety equipment distributor Ocean Safety said it appointed a service station on the Caribbean island of St. Lucia.

Liferaft and Inflatable Centre Ltd., based in Rodney Bay, is certified to service safety equipment supplied by Ocean Safety, including the Jonbuoy range of man-overboard equipment, Kru life jackets and Ocean Safety’s leisure and Solas ranges of life rafts.

Popular with visiting cruising yachts, and the finish line destination of the annual ARC rally across the Atlantic, Rodney Bay is one of the Caribbean’s busiest hubs for sailors and their needs.

“We are continuing to build on our global service station expansion program and we are delighted to welcome another addition to our growing portfolio,” Ocean Safety training manager Steve Bockett said in a statement. “By increasing the number of our centers in the Caribbean, we are providing extra choice and convenience in the region.”
