Personal watercraft now Exempt from EPIRB requirement - Maritime Safety Queensland

Posted by

Maritime Safety Queensland have made the exciting announcement that EPIRBS's are no longer a requirement for use on a personal watercraft ( Jet Skis, Canoes, Kayaks and Small sailing vessels under 6m ) in Queensland. Instead PLB's are now the only requirement for personal watercrafts. This is great news for everyone who enjoys being on the water in personal watercrafts, but are restricted by the bulky size of an EPIRB. With the new requirements you can now attach a PLB to your life jacket, and ensure your safety comes first. For more information check out the full conditions here.

Boating & RV stock all the major PLB's which abide by the new requirements. Check them out in-store or in our new catalogue
