During the summer months we sailed around our coasts. Notebook in hand, we jotted down all the shrewdness we saw aboard the boats we gradually encountered, at roadsteads and in port: the latest accessories that are becoming a “must, bestsellers, but also clever and little-known solutions. There is no shortage of products designed for different sectors but that seem to be tailored to the needs of boaters…

NESPRESSO – ESSENCE MINI C30 BLACK
It is Nespresso’s smallest coffee maker (8.4×20.4×33 cm), which is why it is great on boats. It heats up and is ready to use in 25 seconds flat and consumes very little energy. It costs 99 euros. www.nespresso.com

SODASTREAM – SPIRIT
An ideal carbonator for those who do not want to give up sparkling water on board (99 euros). Just fill the bottle with tap water, insert it into the machine body, press the button! www.sodastream.it


DAVIS INSTRUMENTS – RAILLIGHT PREMIUM

On the top it has a photovoltaic panel that recharges it, and thanks to a bracket you mount it wherever you want even on candlesticks. The Raillight LED solar lamp is a real “cool” with zero impact! www.davisinstruments.com


PARROT – MAMBO

Ideal for filming from the boat and inexpensive (179.90 euros), the Parrot Mambo amazed us because it is easy to use and comes with a pair of glasses with which you will see images in real time. www.parrot.com


SEAGOW – BREATHING APPARATUS

Underwater work in the hull? This summer We saw that many were helping themselves to a tank like Seagow, which provides 15 minutes of oxygen down to 3 m depth. www.seagow.com


GARMIN – INREACH MINI

It has similar functions as its big brother (ability to send and receive messages, SOS alarm), but the InReach Mini two-way satnav weighs only 120 grams! www.garmin.com/inreach


VIBRAM – FIVEFINGERS V-AQUA

You will feel like you are barefoot, but without the risk of slipping. Vibram’s new V-Aqua are a bundle of technology and comfort, ideal in boats as well as on rocks and pebbles. eu.vibram.com


SOLAVORE – SPORT SOLAR OVEN

In the Solavore portable solar oven, rays enter through the transparent cover, are made more powerful by the reflective inner liner, and a plastic film retains heat, cooking food. Wow. Two granite pans and thermometer are also included in the price. www.solavore.com

HELLY HANSEN – HELLYPACK BAG
The HellyPack Bag is a waterproof duffel bag (50 liters) that “unrolls” thanks to two zippers along its circumference and transforms into a multi-pocketed carrier that is extremely useful on board. www.hellyhansen.com

CRESSI – MED X
The Med X wetsuit model is one-piece made of 3 mm double-lined neoprene and is perfect for snorkeling, diving, sailing and surfing, since, being very light, it allows great freedom of movement. www.cressi.com
