Emergency Locator Beacons, EPIRBS, and PLBs are essential for any extended offshore voyage or journey to a remote area. Emergency Locator Beacons transmit your location to a satellite when activated for emergency purposes. This information can then be sent to coordinate a rescue or aid mission. Emergency Locater Beacons must be current and registered. Off The Hook Yacht Services can recommend an Emergency Locator Beacon for your next journey.
