Which materials do you prefer to work with?
We are making great strides with thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU). This is a material that possesses a heap of technical and environmental advantages over the current industry-wide choice of polyvinyl chloride (PVC). PVC is inherently brittle and requires the addition of plasticisers to give it pliability. It’s these plasticisers that leach harmful chemicals into the ocean. TPU on the other hand is a fully melt-processable thermoplastic, which by its very nature, is highly flexible. Despite its high price to produce, we are determined to manufacture inflatables for the superyacht market that are almost entirely recyclable. Not only does our premium grade TPU not leach, is also resistant to oil, grease, solvents and chemicals and has excellent tensile strength and abrasion resistance.
What are the most frequently requested inflatables?
We work with a large number of yachts to design and manufacture netted sea pools. We also have a lot of requests for super-size modular docks that increase the useable space at water level.
Do you get a lot of feedback from crew?
Yes, absolutely — in fact, it’s often the crew who first recognise the need for a certain product or custom feature. Portability and storage-friendly are nearly always their top priorities and of course, we’re only too glad to comply. After all, today’s crew are tomorrow’s captains!
Aside from sea pools, slides and docks, are there any other products we ought to know about?
The unsung heroes of the range are our Dynamic Links. These are the safest and most versatile way to connect inflatable docks and sea pools to your yacht. Made from super-strength Dyneema®, our Dynamic Links are ultra-strong, ultra-light and effortless to use.
