NautiBuoy Marine, manufacturer of multifunctional floating platforms for superyachts, is launching four new products during boot Düsseldorf 2024, in celebration of its 10th anniversary.
Founded in 2014 by superyacht stewards Clay Builder and Nina Anderson, NautiBuoy is known for its buoyant platforms designed to expand usable space on the water for superyachts.
The firm says its compact, easy-to-inflate platforms deliver superior durability and premium quality, acting as a social sunbathing deck, a dock for water toys and a secure maintenance platform all in one.
The inflatable platforms are designed to attach and extend the aft of a superyacht to create customisable beach clubs in minutes. Available in four sizes, the platforms can be connected in a variety of different ways to create everything from large traditional beach clubs, jet ski pontoons and water sports centres to classic walkways, a diving platform and a secure maintenance platform.
Then there’s the added options such as C-docks Seabob docking stations, inflatable steps and L-Bow joints for high transoms. The modular platforms connect via Air Toggle technology, an entrapment-free connection that means no hard or mechanical parts are needed.
Due to the inflatable design, platforms can be rolled up and stored efficiently in a tender garage, without compromising on valuable stowage space. The largest platform weighs 42kg and can be carried by just two crewmembers. The platforms feature with NautiBuoy’s soft underfoot PE Faux teak foam, for a sleek finish.
To celebrate NautiBuoy’s ten-year anniversary, the brand is unveiling four new modular inflatable products to its portfolio of ready-to-ship products, on stand A11 in hall number 9 at boot Düsseldorf, which takes place from 20 to 28 January 2024.
Responding to the huge boom of e-foiling boards on the market, NautiBuoy has designed a drive-on, drive-off solution to dock the wide variety of boards available.
The new NautiBuoy e-foil dock takes seconds to inflate and attaches to existing platforms, using its Air Toggle technology. Inflating and attaching to the platform takes boaters less than a minute and requires very little space for stowage.
The NautiBuoy C-Shade is for boaters who want to stay cool. A fully inflatable, multifunctional canopy, the C-Shade allows guests to enjoy shaded areas of the platform throughout the day or for use directly alongside the platforms, creating a cool spot for tenders and jet skis. It can also be used whilst floating freely, anchored at the shore or on the beach itself.
NautiBuoy’s new inflatable and netted Sea Pools create a comfortable space to enjoy the water without the risk of jellyfish or other sea life.
Available in two sizes, the Sea Pools provide a safe environment for children to play in, with a barrier protecting them from marine wildlife. Designed with a firm underfoot, the sides of the superior pools are perfect for docking water toys and small tenders, or connecting other products from the NautiBuoy range.
The final addition to NautiBuoy’s new range is the Double Bay Jet Ski Dock. Elevating the jet ski experience and ensuring a safer and more comfortable embarking and disembarking process, the Double Bay Jet Ski Dock provides valuable protection to the jet skis in varying sea conditions and allows riders to drive straight into the dock. It can be used as a stand-alone product or connected to the Sea Pools and platforms.
“Celebrating a decade of innovation and success, we are thrilled to launch four new premium products at boot Düsseldorf 2024,” says Clay Builder, NautiBuoy co-founder and head of UK sales.
“Superyachts are a luxurious playground for adults and children alike – our journey began with a vision to innovate usable space on the water, and today, we proudly unveil four new additions that epitomise the luxury and enjoyment of an onboard superyacht experience.
“As we look back on our remarkable journey, we invite you to join us on stand A11, where our team of experts will be on hand for company insight and product demonstrations. Here’s to 10 years of innovation, and to the exciting future that lies ahead on the open water.”
