New Wave liferafts, prominent in Western US states, are renowned for their uncompromising quality and design sophistication. In addition to meeting the requirements of the International Convention of the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) 1996, as amended (except for 4-person model), rafts are manufactured to NATO AQAP 1 quality standards and hold approvals from most major international marine authorities, including the United States Coast Guard and UK Department of Trade.
