The Barton tech team will be exhibiting a large selection of their extensive deck equipment range at Southampton Boat Show 2022, including recent releases Skydock and the Stanchion Bullseye Lead Block. Barton can be found on stand J316 in the Ocean Hall from the 16th to the 25th September alongside UK distributor Barrus.
With the first signs of autumn arriving and most boaters starting to think about winterizing and storing away more vulnerable bits of kit, Skydock is a must discover product at the show. Our demo shows you how to safely and securely lift items such as sails, cushions, dinghies, lifejackets, life rafts, tenders, inflatable toys and much, much more, stored in previously unused storage space in your garage, outbuilding or loft over the winter months. Up to 80kg can be easily lifted and stored out of the way.
With the option of a 3:1 and 4:1 purchase system, loads can be easily shifted straight from the roof of a car or from the ground by one person with little stress. The unique Barton self-locking pulley block will take the strain and not allow lifted items to fall, even if the line is accidentally released.
All parts required for installation are included in the one box and easy to follow instructions, backed with a handy video guide available on the Barton YouTube Channel, enable Skydock to be ready for use in around an hour. SkyDock really is the ultimate roof space storage solution. Find out more about SkyDock at Bartonmarine.com - and you will discover that the sky’s the limit when it comes to storage with SkyDock.
Also new in 2022, the Stanchion Bullseye Lead Block does what it says on the label! Attaching to the base of stanchions, they secure furling lines out of the way on the rail, for smooth running and snag free operation. With no moving parts and minimal weight, the stainless steel fixing nuts enclose a clever two-part marine grade shell and a hard anodised surface on the eye, it is designed for a long service life afloat. Simple to install with no holes required in the deck, they are the perfect upgrade for anyone with a furling headsail, jib or genoa.
Hundreds of other products will be available for show and tell on the Barton display, so if you are thinking about upgrading or replacing any deck hardware ready for 2023 and looking for sleek looking, high quality, long lasting, but great value products, then visit Barton’s stand J316 at Southampton Boat Show.
About Barton Marine
Barton Marine has been a worldwide supplier of blocks since 1948 in Whitstable, Kent. The founder, Ron Barton, was one of the first to use Tufnol, and later, plastic injection moulded plastics and stainless steel to manufacture yachting blocks which were much lighter and stronger than previously achievable. 70 years on, Barton Marine remains the premier UK deck equipment manufacturer for leisure sailing yachts up to 48 feet and supplies the range worldwide.
In 2020 sister company Barton US LLC was incorporated, with warehousing facilities in Hampton, Virginia to better serve the US market place.
