With boat owners continuing to want the same technologies in their craft as at home, Leisure Products has seen a large rise in the number of induction hobs being sold.

“Induction hobs not only cook food quicker, but they are a lot safer than conventional hobs,” explained Louise Watts, sales manager Leisure Products. “Boatbuilders are looking at the future and embracing new technologies. Sales of induction hobs have rocketed.”

In addition, the company is giving its Neptune 4500 a face lift to make sure it still looks modern.

“We have to keep pace and make sure it looks on point,” said Louise. “The Neptune cooker’s popularity comes from its robustness and its ability to cook for a family without taking up large amounts of space in the galley.”

She added: “We’re also in talks with some of our customers about designing products for them – some are variations to our hobs, some are our own products coming through.

“She added: “We are reviewing all our products to make sure they comply with the Gas Appliance Regulations that are coming into force in April.”

The GAR replaces the Gas Appliance Directive with more emphasis on risk assessment by manufacturers and CE certificates now having a maximum validity of ten years.
