Indie Marine

Nov 3, 2020

Introducing Indie Marine, a new Canadian marine supply importer whose goal is to bring the highest quality and most innovative marine products from around the world to Canadian dealers and their customers. Their first featured product line is the TeamO Marine Inflatable PFDs from the UK that comes equipped with a potential life-saving technology called BackTow.

Experience has shown that simply being tethered to a boat does not ensure you will survive a man overboard incident. All too many sailors around the world have drowned at the ends of their tethers because they could not hold their faces clear of the water while being dragged by a boat. The TeamO Inflatable PFD solves this problem through its patented BackTow technology, which when deployed transfers the anchor point of the harness from the front of the jacket to the back. As a result, a MOB is pulled through the water back-first and face-up, making breathing possible.

Currently TeamO Inflatable PFDs are the only product in the world that has this ground-breaking technology which is why Indie Marine has decided to import them into Canada. The chance that even just one sailor could be saved because of BackTow makes it worth it. 

 Indie Marine is currently establishing dealers across Canada. If your business would like to find out more about this great opportunity to feature a new and innovative Inflatable PFD in your store then please contact us at
