Buy your dan buoy here. This self-inflating dan buoy resolves challenges in quickly deploying man overboard gear by bringing all pieces together in one fluorescent green/yellow unit with whistle. It is easy to see, easy to hear, easy to stow, and easy to deploy.

This man overboard marker is quick and easy to use. Just Throw! immediately to your MOB. In seven seconds, the SOS Marine dan buoy self–inflates. It becomes a six foot tall floating inflated spar buoy, with an eight foot streamer and strobe at its top, made of super high visibility day–glow fluorescent yellow material. It is ballasted to maintain as vertical an attitude as wind and sea conditions allow.

Night time visibility is enhanced by the automatically activated SOLAS strobe light and lengths of SOLAS light reflective tape. A whistle helps the man overboard alert you to his position in heavy fog, and the device incorporates hand holds so the man in the water can hang on to the highly visible buoy. Click to a complete description of this man overboard buoy including complete documentationother videos, photos and more. This product comes complete with necessary CO2 cartridge which you will need to install.

Choose From Two Mounting Devices

To accommodate quick access and easy deployment of your dan buoy, consider one of these purpose-engineered mounting devices, the Dan Hold mounting bracket or the Dan Bag mounting bag.

Mounting Bracket

A mounting bracket, the Dan Hold is available. It is suitable for bulkhead, pedestal guard / pedestal grab rail, or pushpit / stern pulpit applications. Better yet, when you add the dan buoy and Dan Hold combination to your cart, you pay only for shipping of the dan buoy; the holder ships for free!

Mounting Bag

You can buy the dan buoy with Dan Bag holder if you prefer. It is made of flexible, shiny white reinforced PVC. The top of the soft–sided Dan Bag is closed with hook–and–loop material like Velcro. Just peel back the top flap to pull the dan buoy out. Then Just Throw! the dan buoy to your MOB.

May Need Additional Mounting Brackets

Installing either the Dan Hold or the Dan Bag dan buoy holders on your boat generally also requires additional mounting brackets. These are sold one–by–one; you will probably need several.

…without the [dan] buoy…I would be dead.



Dan Buoy Recharge Kit

The dan buoy is as simple to recharge as a self–inflating life jacket. In case you need to use it on a passage or in a race, keep aboard spare recharge kits so you can reuse your dan buoy for another rescue. Choose the recharge kit for your inflation mechanism.
