    Switlik SAR-6 Transoceanic Life Raft MKII is the marine version of the air-droppable life raft (Model LRU-20) we design for the United States coast guard's helicopters and fixed wing aircraft along with the Royal Australian Air Force.

    It is the world’s finest blue water offshore life raft. As the choice of numerous professional search and rescue teams around the world, the SAR-6 is built from the bottom-up to keep you safe and give you peace of mind in any sea conditions. This rugged transoceanic life raft is constructed of our Nylon-HD upgraded tube fabric and features an auto erecting convertible canopy, twin oversized tubes, and the patented Toroidal Stability Device for the ultimate stability. The boat shape design of the SAR-6 provides extra leg room for six people and offers the highest level of stability and protection from the elements, while our unique canopy design circulates fresh air throughout to mitigate seasickness and keep morale high

    There is no one universal method of rating raft capacities (see here). In fact, there are several different methods and governmental agencies worldwide that rate the capacity of a life raft based on the following criteria: usable floor area, inflated buoyancy, size of an average individual, and their concept of how long someone might be in the raft before rescuenot to mention how you find yourself to be there, i.e. from a sinking vessel or a ditched aircraft.

    As a result, SWITLIK takes the position that a life raft's capacity is truly defined by its total size in floor area and inflated buoyancy. How many "people" that translates into depends upon your usage and interpretation of the above criteria.  A raft that might safely support 6 or 8 people in an emergency for 24 hours will seem a lot smaller for a transoceanic passage where rescue might be weeks in coming.
