Fort Lauderdale-based Voyager Maritime Alliance Group (VMAG) now sells a full line of marine fire detection products manufactured by Fireboy-Xintex.
“What brought it home was the recent disaster in the Bahamas and how easy a boat can go up in smoke so quickly,” stated David Leone, president of VMAG, in reference to a fatal tour boat explosion and fire in July that killed one passenger and wounded nine. “Our mission is to put as many fire detection systems on the boats we work on as possible.”
VMAG decided to become a distributor of Fireboy-Xintex products because of its ability to provide pre-engineered and custom-engineered fire safety systems, Leone stated.
“The FR Series has an intelligent networked solution with easy installation, and provides full indication from one central location on a boat,” he said. “With regular inspection and maintenance of fire safety equipment a mandatory requirement, putting on a system that is easy to monitor, is the obvious option to install.”
VMAG now provides annual testing and maintenance contracts for yachts. For more information, visit www.vmag.cc.
