Will be requiring a life raft from Dec 2022 until end of March 2023 for a tour to Fiordland and Stewart Island.

What is the most cost effective solution? Hire? Buy and sell? or does someone have one not being used?

Would need to be 6-8man.

A mate has done several multi-month trips.  He swears by the buy and sell model.

Haggles for a rock bottom discounted price from several vendors. 

And then sells it on Trademe upon his return. Once he made money, twice it cost him ~$300. Definitely cheaper than renting one for 4 months.

To the best of my knowledge no company is renting, would have to be done privately.  I decided to buy and sell but the world ended and we haven't gone anywhere. 

Other personal stuff means this year is out, so hopefully next year.

Here's our current view, no liferaft required.
