Yacht racing PLB hire 

If multiple PLBs are needed on one boat, having just the one crew member order means we can reduce the administration costs. 
So get together, find out how many PLBs are needed on your boat, give us a call and we will organise the rest.  

Where possible we are reducing the cost for boats that are organised, get in early, use us regularly and return quickly. If we just deal with one crew member for hire delivery and return it makes life very easy.


We recommend and supply only GPS-enabled personal EPIRBs (PLBs) 

If you are thinking about buying a PLB please DON'T try to save money buying the non GPS version. 

They should not be on the market, they are slow and less accurate and will waste critical time in the event of a rescue.
a Non GPS PLBs can take up to 3 hours to pinpoint your location. 
EPIRBhire has had 17 rescues to date with GPS-enabled PLBs, all had a rescue response at their location within 2 hours.


If you hire or borrow an EPIRB make sure your trip details plus any follow up 

information is instantly available 24/7 to AMSA to assist in your rescue.
