Nautibuoy - Nautical Platforms
Nautibuoy – Nautical Platforms

Is the space on board not enough for you? You can expand it very simply with an inflatable platform. There are many of them on the market, one of the most reliable brands that produces them is called Nautibuoy, and this year on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the Dame award received at Mets in Amsterdam it launched some interesting new products by presenting them at Boot Düsseldorf. They are very different solutions from each other, suitable for those with efoil boards, jet skis, or for those who simply want a surface to relax in the shade.

How Nautibuoy platforms work

Nautibuoy platforms are designed to be attached to the stern of a yacht or superyacht and create an exclusive beach club. The brand’s different platforms (there really are ones for every taste, from water toys to plain, flat ones) can be linked together to create larger multipurpose platforms suitable for different uses. Among the most popular products are“pools,” or platforms that create a frame around a body of water protected by a net, to allow bathing sheltered from fish and jellyfish, a popular solution for those with young children. Then there are flat platforms, from those for doing yoga at the water’s edge to those specifically for doing maintenance on the hull, or for cleaning it.

Water toys: arriva il “mini-compressore” anche per barche piccole

Nautibuoy’s proprietary system allows modular platforms to connect to each other via innovative Air Toggle technology, a connection that requires no rigid or mechanical parts. The platforms also are all inflatable, so they can be rolled up and easily stored in a locker or garage tender.

The platform for foiling boards

More and more are being seen, even in the Mediterranean. We are talking about e-Foil boards, one of the most popular water toys for boat owners. For them, Nautibuoy designed an up-and-down platform that allows any type of board to be docked with speed and ease. The dock can be inflated and attached to other platforms with Air Toggle technology in less than a minute, and allows you to get on and off the foil board in a second.

The floating gazebo

Another novelty is the C-Shade platform, an inflatable, multifunctional system that consists of a kind of inflatable floating awning. It can be used to shade another platform or to shade jet skis, tenders or aiwater toys to avoid keeping them in the sun all day. Or again: you can bring it ashore for shade if you decide to spend some time at the beach.

The watercraft dock

To make it easy to disembark and embark from jet skis, Nautibuoy created the Dock Double Bay Jet Ski. In addition to making it easier to get on and off the vehicle, the platform also makes it safer and more comfortable to use, protecting the bikes in unstable sea and weather conditions.
