World record lifeboat boarding
The very first full scale boarding test of the world’s largest lifeboat, PALFINGER MARINE’s new flagship for the cruise industry, landed the company a new world record. In 2015 PALFINGER MARINE won the impressive contract for delivery of 24 tenders, 12 lifeboats, 36 davits and six rescue boat stations to a series of cruise ships being built by STX France. The complete lifesaving package is now in production, and 20 April marked a huge milestone for the project: The crucial full scale boarding test of the new MPC 49 – the world’s largest and PALFINGER MARINE’s flagship lifeboat.
