Marisafe based in Świnoujście, is as a daughter company of Navikon Polish Ship & Offshore Yard .

The purposes of the company are:

  • Servicing and certification of lifeboats and launching appliances in accordance to MSC1/Circ. 1206
  • Load test of lifting equipment including cranes, derricks, lifeboats, davits etc. on board and ashore.
  • Reinstatement of above equipment.

It sometimes occurs that during the servicing, a number of defects are identified by the servicing company. These defects will then be mentioned on the report, which can result in the attending classification or flagstate surveyor not willing to credit the annual safety equipment survey for the vessel, until such time as all identified defects have been rectified.
More then often this leaves the Shipowner/Manager with an unfinished service for which he has to try and find solutions in the form of repair facilities. Once the Shipowner/Managers has organized the necessary repairs, the same servicing company must re-visit the vessel to inspect and certify that all defects have been resolved and a clean certificate can be issued. This can be a very expensive exercise for the vessel, in particular those cases where the service is done in one port and the repairs in another port.

The competitive edge of the Marisafe – Navitec partnership is that any defects found during the service, can often by rectified on the spot. This off course is dependent on the nature of the defect, the location of the vessel (in Benelux or not), and the length of the port stay.

Whenever possible, Marisafe will provide the Owner/Manager of the vessel with a proposed repair plan and cost estimate for defects found during the servicing.

The Owners/Managers can then decide if they whish Marisafe to proceed with the repairs or not, so that at the end the vessel can sail with a clean certificate.

This has the following major advantages for the shipowner/manager:

  • The servicing as well as repairs are done by the same company and whenever possible in the same portcall of the vessel.
  • Upon completion of the repairs, the vessel will receive a clean certificate for lifeboats and launching appliances.
  • Eradicate the need for a workshop to attend at another port to execute repairs.
  • Eradicate the need for a classification surveyor to re-attend at another port to verify repairs.
  • Steel repairs are completed by class approved welders.


As such, Marisafe can offer a complete package to the Shipowner/Manager that not only includes the servicing but also any occasional repairs.

Marisafe has already established a proven track record in repairing a variety of davits, winches and other associated equipment, including as a subcontractor for other servicing companies and major lifeboat and davit Manufacturers. This proves our capability of responding on very short notice and with great efficiency.
