  • Features
    • UV-STABILISED POLYETHYLENE - Rotationally moulded to form a seamless body, 8.0mm thick, able to withstand knocks and/or collision. Through a unique mould design and a controlled process, an increased thickness is formed at major stress points. This rugged material is abrasion resistant and repels marine growth, eliminating costly sandblasting and painting.

      LONG-TERM STRENGTH – Equipped with a stainless steel mooring and lifting eye, the buoy is easily handled. The buoy is EPS foam filled to prevent significant water ingress in event of puncture, making it unsinkable. As with all Sentinel® buoys, minor punctures are on-station repairable.
    • MATCHING OR ALTERNATING COLOURS – The SB-60 buoy is available in all recommended IALA colours, including cardinal and bifurcation markings, with optional IALA-recommended topmarks.
    • LANTERN - Various lanterns can be fitted to the top for nighttime applications.


    • Optional 10m2 radar reflector
    • Optional repair kit


    • The SB-60 can be equipped with Tideland Signal’s Nova-65SC (shown in photo at right), or SolaNOVA-65, which are maintenance-free, self-contained lanterns that utilise LED technology, high performance solar modules and high-grade batteries.
