Life Jackets / PFD's

Life Jackets / PFDs

After the craft itself, life jackets and personal floatation devices (PFDs) are the most important pieces of equipment recreational boaters should have on board. Wholesale Marine carries an extensive selection of jackets and PFDs for every family member including the dog! Choose from Onyx, O’Brien, HO Sports, Connelly, Hyperlite, and Texas Recreation. You’ll find the right-sized vests at very competitive prices.

While some regulations vary by state, the United States Coast Guard requires that there be an appropriately-sized life jacket for everyone on board and recommends that these be worn at all times. Compliance can be difficult, especially when it is warm out. Wholesale Marine has compiled a list of scenarios where wearing life jackets can be a lifesaver:

  • Should the boat capsize during a storm or on rough waters, especially when the temperature is below freezing.

  • When accidently thrown overboard for any reason, including a boat collision, losing balance on deck, or while sport fishing.

  • When swimming is difficult due to waterlogged garments.

  • Injuries from unseen objects below the surface, such as rocks and other debris.

Care and Maintenance of Life Jackets

Every life jacket should be tested for buoyancy at least once a year. Any jacket that has become waterlogged or leaky, even faded, should be replaced. Check to see if your children have outgrown their lifejacket, as well. Remember that the best life jackets are the ones that are worn, so make sure yours are comfortable. It is one of the best investments you’ll ever make. If you have any questions about life jackets, give our customer service representatives a call for guidance. We’re here Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM until 6:00 PM EST at (877) 388-2628.
