SWITLIK’s CPR is designed to be a high quality, light weight, best in class coastal life raft, with a convertible canopy system, large, fast deploying water ballast bags and heat sealed construction. The CPR provides 1,140 lbs of inflated buoyancy and 19.6 sq. ft of floor area and offers excellent ventilation as well as total protection from the elements.
Boarding a life raft can feel daunting. The CPR makes it as easy as possible with four (4) boarding stations. The CPR comes standard with four (4) wide, stiffened rung ladders that make it easy for someone to climb over a single tube.
The SWITLIK signature convertible canopy feature also allows passengers from any generation to quickly get off your vessel and safely into the raft. Multiple entry points reduce the need for anyone to get in the water.
The raft that fits anywhere can be launched by anyone. The raft is vacuum sealed inside either a soft valise or hard fiberglass container. The soft valise is 21” (L) x 13” (W) x 10”(H) with a weight of 39lbs. The Hard Container is 24-1/2” (L) x 13” (W) x 13” (H) with a weight of 46lbs. Both options can be stored easily on any boat, and can be deployed by anyone on board.
Unlike any other raft on the market, the CPR’s soft valise has a first of its kind 5 year service interval. This extended service interval helps to reduce the overall cost of life raft ownership. SWITLIK accomplished this in a responsible manner through the combined use of our patented and military proven hermetically sealed packaging system and compressed air inflation. This better protects the raft’s materials and provides excellent cold weather inflation performance versus traditional CO2 inflation systems.
With SWITLIK’s air charge inflation system, there is now a visible “go/no go” pressure gauge that lets you know your raft is ready to deploy. Time sensitive survival equipment is packed in an external pocket allowing for updating without the cost of servicing the actual life raft.

There is no one universal method of rating raft capacities (see here). In fact, there are several different methods and governmental agencies worldwide that rate the capacity of a life raft based on the following criteria: usable floor area, inflated buoyancy, size of an average individual, and their concept of how long someone might be in the raft before rescue, not to mention how you find yourself to be there, i.e. from a sinking vessel or a ditched aircraft.
As a result, SWITLIK takes the position that a life raft's capacity is truly defined by its total size in floor area and inflated buoyancy. How many "people" that translates into depends upon your usage and interpretation of the above criteria. A raft that might safely support 6 or 8 people in an emergency for 24 hours will seem a lot smaller for a transoceanic passage where rescue might be weeks in coming.
