SART

SART

SART, also known as Search And Rescue Transponder, is a slim safety and survival device that is used in conjunction with other safety and survival marine devices in order to enhance rescue operations. When interrogated by radar, the SART will emit 12 distinctive radar screen blips that are strong enough to be recognized as a distress signal. This allows passing vessels to aid and report on emergency situations if there is ever a catastrophe at sea. SART are required worldwide for any GMDSS commercial vessels as well as any vessel carrying more than one liferaft. We always recommend that recreational boaters also carry a SART as part of their safety preparedness plan because we never get tired of saying that being prepared is the best remedy against the unpredictable seas. SARTs have batteries that need to be replaced at authorized replacement centers and many come with a test feature that will allow operators to troubleshoot and detect any abnormalities before leaving port. If you have any questions about Search And Rescue Transponders, please give us a call or write us an email and we will be more than glad to assist you in the buying process. This device will save your life! Don't believe us? No problem.
