The Survitec Group appointed The Gartner Group to represent the Crewsaver life raft and life jacket ranges in the southeastern United States.

Based in Loudoun, Tenn., with additional offices in Fort Lauderdale and Tampa, Fla., and Morehead City, N.C. The Gartner Group has been representing marine equipment and accessories manufacturers since 1954.

“We’re very happy to have The Gartner Group on the Crewsaver team,” Survitec Group U.S. leisure marine sales manager Andrew Hiller said in a statement. “Their knowledge of the market and many years of experience will be invaluable as we expand our presence in recreational boating.”

Crewsaver recreational life rafts have three models: one for coastal, under 24-hour ocean and over 24-hour ocean use. All are available in sizes to accommodate four to 12 people. Coast Guard approval is expected soon for a new Crewsaver life jacket range specially designed for use in the United States.
