Vestdavit designs, supplies and supports tailor-made solutions for launching and recovering boats in difficult conditions at sea. Its range of boat handling systems and davits are the first choice of navies, coastguards, seismic survey operators, pilot authorities and offshore operators who need to be able to operate small boats safely from larger vessels.

Since 1975, Bergen-based Vestdavit has supplied over 1,800 davits and side and stern launch systems. They have proven themselves over more than 30 years’ use in the North Sea and other harsh environments around the world. Self-tensioning and shock absorbing systems ensure crew safety and widen the operational window for the users. Vestdavit’s key focus is on operational effectiveness, safety and the reliability of its equipment

Improved safety

Vestdavit davits are built around a fail-safe self tension system, a shock absorber to take peak loads and an end stop which all ensure crew safety while handling boats in demanding conditions.

Reliable davits and reduced maintenance costs

Vestdavit focuses on reliability and ease of maintenance when designing systems. Users benefit from simpler, less frequent maintenance and fewer spare parts needed.

Since 1975 Vestdavit has supplied over 1,800 davits and side and stern launch systems. We have proven ourselves over more than 30 years use in the North Sea and other harsh environments around the world.

Vestdavit systems need very little maintenance between five-yearly services and only a single operator when in use.

Vestdavit Newsletter June 2014

Navies want to use unmanned surface vehicles (USVs). They will keep boatcrews out of high-risk environments and extend the outreach of surface vessels. There are already 40 prototype USVs on the market globally, ranging from one to ten tonnes in weight. But most R&D in this area is focussed on the USV itself.
