Onboard fire prevention

This week we have witnessed how a 12 meter boat, which had just been refueled 800 liters of petrol in Club de Mar, burned.  Salvamento Marítimo services, together with Guardia Civil and Palma Fire Brigade pulled it into the open sea, not being able to stop it from sinking.

And yet, sometimes the risk of fire seems to be overlooked; a blatant mistake considering that most of 75% of materials in a boat are flammable.

It is therefore vital to fit our boat with the most efficient anti-fire materials: fire extinguishers (foam, dry powder, carbon dioxide or clean agent/halogenated) and fire blankets. Depending on the length of the boat, it might be necessary to have more than one fire extinguisher.

Here at YCP we offer a wide range of anti-fire products to keep your boat and its crew safe. Visit us and we will help you find the best product for you.
