    Some exciting news this month from one of our favourite French deck hardware suppliers, Karver Systems, who acquired Pontos winches in February this year.

     

    Pontos was another innovative start-up French company based on St Malo who brought their innovative 4 speed winches to the market in 2012/2013. They dominated the media for the following 2-3 years, coming first in Yachting World’s New Year’s Top 10 (2013) and with feature articles in Yachting Monthly, Practical Boat Owner, Sail World, Seahorse and Yachting World all of whom were impressed and wondering why no-one had done this before.

     

    We are constantly reporting on the latest innovations in the marine industry which offer weight savings whilst, at the same time, increasing safety factors. The result: lighter, faster, safer and more exciting sailing.
