Liferafts and Inflatables Rotating Header Image


C.E.Banyard Ltd. was founded in 1982 when the current owner, Ed Banyard moved part of the long established family Liferaft Servicing, Hire and Inflatable Boat Repair business from Essex to Cornwall.

In 1986 we aquirred the inflatable boat manufacturing company Domino Inflatables and using this technology began producing inflatable tenders and sports boats. From this we were asked to manufacture various ski rides, buoys and floatation collars. Around this time Rigid Inflatable Boats (RIBs) became popular and soon we were re-tubing worn out and damaged RIBs.

Legislation in the form of the Code of Practice saw a call for SOLAS B pack liferafts.  This made hire the sensible option and our hire fleet grew to accomodate this demand and continues now with ISO 9650 type liferafts. We continue to offer leisure liferafts for hire for periods from four days.

Inflatable Boat Repair has always been a large part of our business and we keep ourselves up to date with the latest fabrics and adhesives being used. We carry out authorised repair and warranty work for all the leading manufacturers.

Whilst service and repair is our main business we can also offer very good deals on new and used liferafts, inflatable boats, lifejackets, flares and associated safety equipment.
