NATO Approved man overboard training manikin. Ideal for necessary rescue training drills / simulations — and enabling crew or staff to become proficient using Mob equipment on vessels. 


It is vital that effective MOB drills are conducted frequently with regular crew members on all vessels - this manikin has proven to be an essential tool in achieving that. The secret to the performance of this manikin is the balance between the weighting and the buoyancy - the tough Nylon mesh carcass allows the water to penetrate rapidly and after a few minutes the legs will drop below the surface, resting at an angle of about 45 degrees with just the head and shoulders visible above the surface.

Key Features & Equipment Benefits:

  • Can float horizontally or vertically to simulate a live person or dead body - it takes seconds to move the foam pieces in the overalls to achieve this
  • A loop to the back allows the manikin to be lowered into position or hung up to dry
  • Bright orange overalls and SOLAS reflective tape on the head make the manikins very conspicuous in open water
  • Polypropylene strips allow flexibility in and out of the water but prevent the manikin from bending in half when using stretchers or recovery devices like a Jason's Cradle
  • Polypropylene strip extending from the back up through the neck and into the head to add additional support to the neck
  • Protective overalls and boots are user-replaceable and greatly extend the life of the manikin
