Vestdavit’s PLAR Type is a light weight robust and reliable, A-frame aluminum davit for MOB and FRC handling and has been designed for use where low equipment weight is the highest priority.

Davit systems must be optimized for safety and efficiency, but fast patrol and interception vessels pose special challenges for all marine equipment. Within the Vestdavit range of launch and recovery systems, the aluminium PLAR Type is the marine davit chosen by Coastguards, Navies and Inshore Patrol Vessel operators when weight, as well as performance, is key.

Every kilogram saved can be used to enhance vessel stability and manoeuvrability. The compact PLAR Type davit is extremely low in weight, while its aluminium structure makes it corrosion-proof.  It comes complete with Dynamic Shock Absorber and hydraulic boat guiding arms, which ensure safety of crew during operation.

With lifting capacities ranging from 2,500 kg to 7,000 kg, the PLAR Type is flexible, compact and resilient. It features the high degree of redundancy for which Vestdavit is renowned.

PLAR Type davits are hydraulically operated with power stored via accumulators in compliance with latest SOLAS requirements. They can be installed with optional Wave Compensation System on winch, Hydraulic Wire Puller, Hydraulic Limit Switch and Remote-Control unit.

The PLAR Type single point telescopic davit is CE certified in accordance with the Marine Equipment Directive; it is fully approved by DNV-GL, while other class society approvals are available on request.
