Hi Anke


Thank you for taking the time to show the crew around yesterday. It was very beneficial and educational to all who attended. Every crew member returned to the vessel with many facts about life rafts and sea survival that they did not previously know. One crew member even stated that he learned more in one hour with you than he did on his STCW course.

Your time has been very much appreciated.

Regards, Captain Shane, S.Y. Vertigo 


We can highly recommend Anke from Life Rafts Etc in St Martin. Anke allowed us to view our raft being opened and then spent several hours explaining the features of our raft and of the work she was going to conduct as part of the service. This was especially valuable for our three small children, who have never seen a raft inflated and now have an understanding of how it deploys and what it looks like. Anke’s depth of knowledge and professionalism has given us great confidence in our raft as a crucial part of our yacht’s safety system.

Hi Anke,  Thanks for all your help. I learned a lot and appreciate your knowledge and thorough teachings on the serious subject of LifeRafts & Lifesaving operations. I will highly recommend your services.

My Best Regards, Michael Hines, S/V Premier Grand Cru.


To: "Palapa Marina St. Maarten"  attention : Allistair,

I just wanted to mention to you that the company in which I had the life raft service just prior to Christmas, was with out doubt one of the most professional marine sercive companies I have ever dealt with.

"Life Rafts etc" who already had a hectic schedule, was able to service our liferafts within the time frame given.

Prior to the service I was emailed with appropriate detail - the time frame to serice a liferaft and also what delays that could have been expected if there were any issues. For example; the life raft being wet - and the drying time needed. And yes, our life raft got wet - this was just a bit of bad luck.

When the life rafts arrived at the service centre, Anke worked late into the evening on Christmas eve, started work on the service, so that the raft could start to dry out.

I was kept informed of the process, and as time was against us, i really knew that the life rafts were in good shape, and we would have the rafts back in time. Emails with photos were sent each day, and I knew exactly what was happening. The life rafts were returned, and in person was Anke with the certificate. 

So if any vessel requires life rafts or safety equipment aervice, I can strongly reconemd Anke with Life Rafts etc.

I have been using the services of Anke Roosens and her company, Liferafts Etc., for 6 seasons now and I cannot recommend her enough.

She has repeatedly shown herself to be flexible, patient and efficient in dealing with the sometimes ridiculous timelines I’ve presented her with.

She is a true professional in every manner and I would not consider taking my rafts or business to anybody else.

Hi Anke, Thank you! I will recommend you for sure, never got the rafts back such a short time!

We will be back in W.I. next winter and the service have to be done again then.

I will contact you next time for the service.

Kindest Regards, Jan L.   S/Y Canica


Dear Anke,

Thank you very much for servicing our liferaft as such short notice.

I was very impressed with the professional and competent manner in which you approached the work. We will call around to the Maritime School to collect the raft and pay up. All being well we will then be on our way.

I would have no hesitation in recommending your service among the UK cruising forums. Good luck with your delivery and thank you again.

Best regards, Keith


Hi Anke - thanks for your email and your time the other day. It was really useful for us all to see what's been in that canister all that time!!

I appreciate you taking the time to walk us through it and especially for letting the boys climb in and around.

Thanks again & all the best, Matthew, Rachel, Alexander and Nicholas. 


Hi Anke,

Thanks for sending me the news about your new site! I'm sure it will be a success and work well for you.

As owner/operator of Tradition Sailing Charters in Anguilla I have worked on a professional basis with LifeRaftsEtc. for several years now, including rentals and purchase.

You have always been fast, helpful and professional. I would gladly recommend your company to anyone who needs your services.

Sincerely, Laurie Gumbs, Tradition Sailing Charters, Anguilla


Dear Anke, 

We would like to thank you for your very efficient service in SXM. The whole process was made so simple , pickup, service, delivery, payment . Thank you for allowing my crew to familiarize themselves with our own Liferafts inflated and the friendliness and patience shown by your service team. These are the qualities that will make us come back with our safety gear and pass on the word to other vessels.

Once again , THANK YOU, best regards,Timmy Attard Captain, MCA Class 4 -3000gt Unlimited,
