Crewsaver is pleased to announce the launch of a range of new clothing, safety kit and luggage designed for dinghy sailors. With over five decades of expertise in manufacturing quality equipment, Crewsaver prides itself on its thorough research and development system, which results in designing dinghy products that sailors really want to use.

Today Crewsaver launched a selection of buoyancy aids, clothing, gloves and luggage for the dinghy market at METS 2012 (Marine Equipment Trade Show) in Amsterdam, the international marine leisure industry’s largest trade show.
