  • APRIL Marine teams up with the SNSM
    APRIL Marine has been a partner of the SNSM (French national sea rescue service) since November 2012.

On Saturday 5th December 2015, Lionel Boismery, Chairman and CEO of APRIL Marine presented Xavier de la Gorce, President of the SNSM with a new cheque for €22,250, at the Paris Boat Show.


This offered an opportunity for APRIL Marine to renew its commitment to the SNSM for 2016. The APRIL Marine team is proud to fly this organisation's flag in support of the rescue teams who offer their assistance to seafarers every day.


The SNSM and APRIL Marine share the same concerns for boaters' safety, prevention and awareness raising about the dangers at sea.



APRIL Marine's commitments in terms of safety and prevention:


  • Partner of the SNSM since 2012. Assistance and breakdown cover in dock and at sea with the APRIL Marine Assistance application.


  • Special discounts in the online store to kit out your boat and keep your crew safe, including first aid training, life jackets and man overboard detection systems.


  • • A customised service to check your boat's safety fittings with APRIL Marine Entretien, in accordance with the new rules which came into force on 1st May 2015.


  • • Shipping forecast and boat tracking service to prepare sailing trips and receive warnings in the event of gales.


APRIL Marine is always looking to add to its solutions so that customers can go sailing knowing that they are safe. Safety at sea is essential, so why not follow APRIL Marine's example and support the SNSM? In 2016, APRIL Marine will continue to support the SNSM, donating €1 per insurance premium to the organisation.
