Hatecke offers various types of conventional lifeboats for capacities ranging from 25 to 80 persons. Of course, all boats can be supplied with suitable davit solutions.

We supply high quality semi-enclosed lifeboats for capacities ranging from 62 to over 460 persons.

Special requirements, such as low temperature Polar Code lifeboats for cruise ships or yachts, are also part of our equipment range.

We offer the shortest combined lifeboat and rescue boat on the market with a capacity of 150 persons, which can also be installed with a suitable Hatecke davit system.

Hatecke offers different types of tender lifeboats for capacities ranging from 150 to over 270 persons.
