the Pioner Multi is an excellent and important component of our fleet, providing a versatile craft alongside an otherwise all RHIB operation. The draught and access arrangements make her extremely suited to certain tasks. She will have a key role to play in the policing of the 2012 Sailing events here”
Asst Chief Constable Adrian Whiting
All Pioner boats and dinghies are certified by Det Norske Veritas (DNV) Certification.
What does that mean for you?
The DNV certification plate ensures that Cipax maintains a high standard of workmanship and that all boats comply with the EU Recreational Craft Directive (RCD).
The use of DNV as an independent external body to do conformity assessments on both design and production ensures that each boat has more than sufficient strength, buoyancy, stability and quality in production.
The CE marking of the boats is the manufacturer's responsibility. Many boat models can be self-certified according to the RCD. Some manufacturers choose to do this to keep costs down.
Cipax have chosen DNV to carry out RCD conformity assessments.
Pioner 12 received its Type Approval Certificate from DNV in December 1973, and started the long term relationship between the manufacturer and DNV.
