The ACEBI freefall hydraulic davit is a high-performance deck-mounted system with deck or under-deck hydraulics for ACEBI freefall lifeboats between 55 and 75 kN. Hydraulic recovery with the crew on board is possible. Stainless steel shafts are used to reduce maintenance to a minimum. For all sizes a simulated launch device is available. This device enables the crew to perform a drop without releasing the freefall all the way down into the water.
