Click here to find the right lifejacket for your activity

Lifejackets are the most important piece of safety equipment on any recreational vessel.

Modern inflatable lifejacket styles are designed to help you get the most out of your day on the water. They are less cumbersome and easy to wear, and they don’t get in the way of your favourite boating activities.  With a wide range of slimline styles and colours available, there’s a lifejacket to suit your specific need. So be safe and wear yours, because a lifejacket could save your life.

A lifejacket must be carried for each person on board all vessels, unless exempt. It must be the correct size for the wearer and in good working condition. But it can’t save your life unless you’re wearing it.

Penalties apply to the owners and masters of vessels found not carrying lifejackets, or if there are not enough lifejackets for everyone on board.

Penalties may also apply if occupants are not wearing lifejackets when they are required to do so.


More importantly, if you are not wearing your lifejacket, it cannot save your life.

Remember:

  • 9 out of 10 people who drowned when boating in NSW were not wearing a lifejacket,
  • Lifejackets must be worn in vessels under 4.8m at night, offshore, when alone, and by children under 12 years of age.
