Navisafe started as Norwegian lighting company and was founded in 2005 following a near-miss accident involving two boats without lights. It was a dark night and Jo Engebrigtsen (former owner and founder of Navisafe) and his family were heading back to their summerhouse in a small boat with just a regular flashlight they had used for years. Suddenly a big day cruiser without lights “came from nowhere”. Jo had just a second to avoid his boat and family being hit by the bigger boat.
