Fire Extinguishers for Boats

Fire extinguishers for boats can include automatic extinguishers and standard units alike.

The Boat Safety Scheme (BSS) recommends having well-maintained and approved portable fire extinguishers on board to tackle any smaller fires. Meanwhile, automatic extinguishers are designed to quickly suppress any fire started by the internal engine of the boat.

Make sure you meet boat fire extinguisher requirements with the right units on your vessel. At Fire Safety Equipment, we stock a wide range of high-quality extinguishers to tackle various risk points such as cooking and lighting equipment.

Fire Safety Challenges on Boats

Fires on boats can cost lives, with a number of sources to blame for these devastating incidents. One of the biggest fire safety challenges on a boat is the fuel used and the engine area, but even the living quarters pose a risk too in terms of kitchen spaces, electronics and the use of open flames like candles.

Due to the range of fuel and ignition sources on boats, it’s imperative that you have fire safety equipment in place. From powder and foam fire extinguishers to LITH-EX extinguishers to deal with battery fires, you can protect staff and passengers, as well as the expensive asset that is your boat.

Boat Fire Extinguishers Frequently Asked Questions

What type of fire extinguishers do you need on a boat?

Portable fire extinguishers are recommended for boats, along with automatic extinguishers. The type of extinguisher will vary depending on the risks unique to your vessel. This can include dry powder extinguishers to cover Class A, B and C fires, or wet chemical extinguishers for cooking oil fires if you have cooking facilities on board.

Where should a fire extinguisher be stored on a boat?

Fire extinguishers should be positioned where they can be easily reached in an emergency. This should include kitchens, cabins, the hull and the bilge, while all units should be sheltered and protected from salt water to avoid rapid deterioration.

How many fire extinguishers do you need on a boat?

The number of fire extinguishers required on a boat varies in relation to the length of the boat. For boats up to seven metres in length, there should be a minimum of two extinguishers. Boats between seven metres and 11 metres in length also require two units of an increased fire rating, while boats over 11 metres in length need a minimum of three fire extinguishers.

How often should I inspect my boat fire extinguisher?

You should inspect the condition of the fire extinguishers on your boat every month. This visual check will ensure units have not been tampered with, damaged or discharged.
