You are looking at the NISSEI YOKOHAMA Life Ring. This life ring was salvaged from a ship that was being torn apart for scraps. NISSEI is a Vehicles Carrier built in 2013 and currently sailing under the flag of Japan. Yokohama, is a city in Japan and is the second most populous city in the country.
The words NISSEI YOKOHAMA can be seen on both sides of the ring. The reflector strips looks to have been replaced but there is one strip that is gone completely. The roping is frayed in some areas. (shown in photo) With all of the small things listed this is what gives this life ring character!
This life ring would look great hanging in a restaurant or bar that has a nautical theme.
This is being sold as-is.
