Christmas Gift - Boat

There is still time to make (or give) Christmas gifts, but if you are running out of ideas and need to think of a gift for someone who has a boat, or is a boating enthusiast, we can help you. We have already given you a great idea, the annual subscription (digital+paper) to Motor Boats. However, if the recipient of the gift is already a subscriber, here are three ideas from our Boat Gear Pavilion within the Boat Show.

Indispensable on board – Leatherman Charge +


Quality, warranty, and timely customer service are the strengths of the historic American multifunctional tool manufacturer Leatherman. Founded in 1983 by Tim Leatherman, the company is now one of the world’s largest manufacturers of multi-purpose tools that are practical and easy to use for solving all kinds of boating problems. The Charge+ is the tool equipped with essential tools for everyday use. Contains durable scissors, replaceable wire cutter, anti-corrosion steel knife, among others. Each tool can be opened and closed with one hand, locking in place for maximum safety. Has scabbard, 7-prong kit and pocket clip included and 25-year warranty.

The boat that doesn’t slip – U-Sail Wave


Despite being extremely durable and solid, U-Sail’s Wave shoe has a very low overall weight: just 269 grams, like a running shoe. Not to mention that the Wave’s minimal, understated look allows them to be worn even once off the boat. They are sneakers suitable for different situations, great to match with smart-casual clothing. What sets them apart, however, is the sole, which is truly unique: water runs off thanks to the groove and drainage holes, so the tread can keep the shoe firm and steady.

Make the windlass smart – System Innovation Group MFC-MK4.1


TheMFC-MK4.1 is the wireless system that allows you to control from a smartphone or tablet any winch or electric winch installed on board the boat. System Innovation Group, an Italian startup founded in 2020, directly followed all stages of the realization of this product, both from the hardware and Magic Fly Electronics proprietary software point of view. From the Magic Fly Connect app, it is so easy to control the operation of the system. The functions are all available in a single screen from which it is also possible to know how many users are connected and if necessary to disconnect them for security reasons.
