MS.40 SOLAS Markusnet
The Markusnet is a rescue device that enables one person to react immediately and effectively to a man overboard situation along a ship side or quay. The net enables rescuers to lift the victim in seconds, despite freeboard height of vessel, thereby greatly decreasing the level of danger. It can also be used with a crane.
The MS.40 Markusnet is designed for man overboard recovery on all types of ships, offshore installations and dams with less than 40 m height from water level up to rescue deck or platform.
The Markusnet type MS is mandatory equipment on decked vessels in several countries. It is also standard equipment in all harbors in Iceland and is now the model for international standards. It is manufactured in several standard versions, depending on freeboard height.

B. Lifting lines on inner end
