Life raft for small ships like pilot boats or police vessels. In original for 8 to 10 persons.
Of course the part is hollow to reduce weight and cost. In "White Detail" it weights only 6g after painting! So you won't get any stability problems when placing it high on the superstructure of a model boat.
Although more expensive I recommend ordering this part in "White Detail" as the smooth surface better fits to a scale looking life raft.
