No more falling on deck. Three non-slip solutions for your boat

At Milan Yachting Week – The Digital Boat Show, our digital boat show, find all the solutions for no-slip boating: from paints to non-slip tapes via natural materials.

The non-slip paint you apply “do-it-yourself”

The first non-slip solution is KiwiGrip (found in Indemar‘s booth), which is ideal for your deck and for do-it-yourselfers. It is a water-based, weather-resistant acrylic paint. KiwiGrip is non-toxic and does not contain solvents.

The application is done with a special roller, you can decide the thickness and “grain” of the anti-slip depending on the pressure you apply. The product’s light weight and affordability make it one of the most popular choices used by sailors who care about substance or performance: there are many ocean sailors, for example, who rely on non-slip paints!


The boat anti-slip inspired by Hawaii’s surfers

Another solution was devised by Harken and was inspired by surfers in Hawaii who had a practical problem. Finding a way to attach something to the board that would not make them slip at crucial moments in the surf and that would not be abrasive to the feet.
