While fishing enthusiasts all over the world rave about the “fishability” of their Surtees, there’s one thing the company treats even more seriously – and that’s safety.
The fact is, Surtees boats are built to the European CE Safety Rating which is recognised as one of the most strict safety ratings in the world and is recognised in over 70 countries.
The time and expertise required to attain this rating is demanding, but it ensures all Surtees boats are incredibly strong and robust with six fully-welded under-floor stringers running the length of the hull with gussets every 4oomm, plus a fully welded tread plate alloy floor.
However, while the CE rating is a feature that separates Surtees from most of its competitors, the designers have taken safety even further by incorporating port and starboard sealed buoyancy chambers along the full length of the hull. The airtight Safety Buoyancy compartments are encased in plate alloy with the hull below and the floor above creating a double barrier of protection that is virtually impenetrable.
Combined with the inherent strength of a Surtees, these additional safety features make boating more pleasurable with the extra security of knowing you have one of the safest boats available.
