A boating vacation is not just the sea, gliding, sunshine, and wind in your hair: it is so much more. It’s stopping to sleep in a roadstead under the starry sky, it’s diving into the water once the anchor is dropped to discover the seafloor, it’s fishing, it’s relaxation, it’s fun, it’s photography, video, and why not, even social. To help you enjoy 100% of the time you spend aboard your boat, we have selected for you twenty “must have” accessories and products of the summer. From the “four-in-one” dinghy to try your hand at sailing, windsurfing, and SUP once you’ve dropped anchor in the roadstead, to the robot that makes your cocktails (and is a bestseller in America); from stargazing apps to water skis so easy to use they’re within everyone’s reach; from the trampoline boat to the all-purpose pocket knife that can never be missing from every true sailor’s pocket. Enjoy your reading, and have fun!
THAT DIPS IN THE ROADSTEAD!
Lillipad makes mini trampolines specifically for the boat, in different sizes. They are compact, lightweight, easy to mount on the deck, and fit all types of boats.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SLAM!
Slam, the historic nautical clothing brand, celebrated its 40th anniversary with a line of iconic garments (such as the regatta polo shirt, summer sailing jacket, hats, Bermuda shorts, and bags…) customized with the 40th logo.
AUTAVIA, THE SAGA CONTINUES
The legendary TAG Heuer Autavia watches produced in the 1960s are back, with a modern twist: highly accurate, they take advantage of the carbon composite balance spring technology that identifies each one as Isograph.
THE STARS AT YOUR SMARTPHONE’S FINGERTIPS
Do you want to know which stars, planets and constellations are above your head? Sky Guide is an iOS app that automatically points them out to you if you point your smartphone or tablet at the sky.
MUSIC FROM GOD!
With Fusion’s RA670 Apollo stereo unit, you can listen to the same music in various parts of the boat or have each speaker in the onboard system stand alone. With DSP technology, the sound sent to the speakers is optimized for each on-board zone.
WATER SKIING WITHIN EVERYONE’S REACH
Ideal for first-time water skiers or children (they work even with low engines), Jobe’s Hemi skis have a wide profile and come complete with a coupling bar to hold them together!
THE PHONE CHARGES ON THE DECK
Scanstrut’s Active is a reinforced, waterproof wireless charger. You secure it on deck with four screws, and the adjustable clamps allow you to use it with many devices without removing them from their waterproof cases.
UNDER A BREATHTAKING SKY
Dark Sky Finder is an iOS app that shows you light pollution maps from around the world. Choose the roadstead in the “dark spots” to sleep under a breathtaking starry sky!
