GME slashes EPIRB Ownership costs

'EPIRB - Free battery replacement offer'    GME    Click Here to view large photo
EPIRBs undoubtedly save lives; barely a week goes by without a press report about a lone sailor plucked from his sinking yacht or a family tragedy being averted by an EPIRB activation.

Australia literally leads the world when it comes to recreational marine safety; no other country in the world has such strict regulations concerning life jackets, flares and most importantly the carriage of a registered EPIRB.

Consequently most Australian boaters view their EPIRB as an essential piece of equipment. It is also the one piece of boating paraphernalia that they pray they’ll never have to use. Whilst in the overall scheme of boating expenses EPIRBs are not considered a particularly high financial impost, with the only ongoing expense being the replacement of the battery at 5 or 6 year intervals.

GME, one of the world’s largest and Australia’s leading emergency beacon manufacturer has now lowered the cost of EPIRB ownership even further.

From August 1st 2012 all GME MT400 and GPS equipped MT406G beacons sold in Australia or New Zealand will be eligible for a free EPIRB service when the 6 year replacement is due. This service includes battery replacement and full performance check, essentially doubling the battery replacement period to a massive 12 years.

Mathew Heap, GME’s marine marketing manager: 'in 2004 we revolutionised the EPIRB market with the low cost MT400, now here’s a new initiative that will further reduce ownership costs.

No other EPIRB manufacturer has ever provided a 12 year battery offer; GME’s additional 6 year battery programme affords fixed ownership costs for an indispensable safety device, representing exceptional value, and peace of mind for our customers.'
