The lifeboat is laminated from fire-retardant polyester resin. The space between the seat and the hull, and the canopy liner and canopy is filled with polyurethane buoyancy foam, which provides the craft with enough buoyancy to remain afloat and upright even if holed below the waterline. The lifeboat is fitted with two lifting hooks, one forward, and one aft. These lifting hooks are designed to be released simultaneously from inside the craft when it is fully waterborne. The boats main embarkation access is via aft door or side hatches. Additional hatches are provided at the helmsman’s position, and the forward of the canopy.
