The requirements for components in sports boats and other vessels 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. 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. A prototype for a sports boat or boats in high-volume production, single components or ready-to-install systems such as linear modules with motors – all igus products offer you motion plastics advantages for the specific requirements in water, including in the area of vessels.

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.
To save moorings in ports, the width of these water catamarans can be reduced to 4.85 metres. Any torsional loads are compensated for with a combination of E04 e-chains® and drylin® linear guides.
