The Makefast Group will show several new products at METSTRADE 2019 including its hydraulically powered bathing platform system.

Based on its Bimini Hydraulic Unit, the system features a high quality compact hydraulic actuator and pump, housed within the structure of a boat. It is suitable for both aft bathing platforms and smaller side swim doors.

Also on show will be a demountable lifeline system that complements the bathing platform.

The lifeline system has been developed to be easily installed and demountable, fitting to the outer decks or platforms of a boat.

The last new product from Makefast is electrically powered windows, developed by the company’s Custom Marine Development division as part of its continual expansion into new market sectors.


The windows - previously aimed at the custom tender market - are now available for sports yachts and cabin cruisers. Each system uses Makefast’s sunroof drive technology combined with high quality fittings.

Makefast has also launched a new service and warranty portal on its website offering technical online support and technical documents for its customers and end users.

This is the first part of an enhancement to the aftersales service offered to customers, that will be followed by a range of extended three-year warranties for sunroof and awning products.

There will also be aftercare kits for boat builders, owner and dealers to purchase containing the necessary spare parts.
