seagull_banner

JFC are delighted to introduce our range of Seagull Navigation Buoys. Designed for both inshore and offshore applications these modular buoy aim  to set a new standard in floating aids to navigation.  JFC Marine have considered all aspects of the buoys life at sea which are designed and manufactured for the most demanding conditions using superior quality materials and considering ease of assembly both onshore or on deck of support vessel. 

This navigation buoy has been designed with an emphasis on durability, flexibility, and economy throughout. It features a unique hull, central core and ballast arrangement, with a modular adaptable day mark. It also boasts excellent structural stability characteristics, power versatility and environmental credentials.

Made from rotationally moulded UV stabilised virgin polyethylene designed especially for marine applications (UV15 rating). Extra strength mooring and lifting eyes ensure ease of manoeuvrability and improved mooring flexibility and service life of the buoy.

By addressing key design criteria it can reduce costs and maximise servicing intervals. Safe access for maintenance personnel and ease of operation have been prioritised as have all deployment, mooring and retrieval requirements.

The Seagull buoy range is manufactured in accordance with the IALA (International Association of Marine Aids to Navigation and Lighthouse Authorities) high visibility colours and shapes to suit a range of installation requirements. (Guideline No: 1006)
