Mooring without effort (and without slipping)? You can!


Give or treat yourself to a subscription to Boats in Motion print + digital and for only 39 euros a year you get the magazine at home plus read it on your PC, smartphone and tablet. With a sea of advantages.

Two solutions as simple as they are ingenious to make mooring easy even for those who have never been on a boat. They come from Harken, a company that has its two main centers of operation in Italy and the United States, and you can find them on display at its booth at Milan Yachting Week.


Electric winches that don’t clutter the deck

CLR Mooring Winch
produced by Harken are mooring winches that allow easy, clean and fast maneuvering. It takes advantage of hydraulic handling and when not in use disappears completely, leaving the cover flush with the deck when closed. This product can also be customized in finishes to better suit different boats. The available chromes are diverse, from aluminum to steel, and can be decided by the owner from an extensive catalog.

No slipping, not only during mooring

This product is really ingenious; it was developed by Harken with some Hawaiian surfers who are experts in balancing on the sea. It is a non-slip tape that can be applied on the deck (without glue or solvents) and besides being super practical, it is also beautiful to look at. Its honeycomb shape fits many boats in style, and it is available in several colors. Marine Grip is not made of foam so it does not absorb water, and it is also nonabrasive and does not overheat, unlike other tapes that get hot in the sun. This is the best solution to avoid slipping on deck, even and especially when mooring!
