The requirements for boat parts in sports boats, sail boats and yatchs are specific: for an engine, outboard motor or rudder system in a sports boat. The constantly wet environment means stringent requirements for resistance to weathering and corrosion within boat parts. Resistant to seawater and robust when exposed to wind and storms: these are the requirements igus® products have to fulfil in vessel construction. Being lightweight and functional is also important, especially in applications such as the interior of sports boats. Sports boats and vessels with igus® products are well-prepared for the requirements on and under the water. All igus® products offer you motion plastics advantages for the specific requirements in water, including in the area of vessels.

How does the dinghy get on to the yacht or the jet ski into the water? This plant manufacturer knows the answer. The company designs lift systems for yachts - and relies on energy chains, drylin® profile guides and iglidur® plain bearings.
These cranes are used to hoist boats out of the water in Fort Meyers, Florida. In both, iglidur® P is used directly in the cable winch drive shaft, which performs a lifting and lowering movement to lift the boats completely out of the water.
energy chain systems and bearing components from igus® withstand the toughest environments.
