We are New Zealand distributors for Oceanair - the world’s No. 1 supplier of blind solutions for boats from the smallest cruiser to luxury yachts.
Oceanair is delighted to launch SKYSOL Precision, a cost-effective, compact pleated blind for yacht windows. The blind can be pulled down and left in any position due to an inbuilt mechanism that provides resistance when the blind is pulled down or pushed up. This is a large advantage for boaters when regulating onboard natural light and temperature, saving on energy costs, whilst ultimately helping to create perfect onboard ambience.
The elegant blind can accommodate a wide range of window sizes and inclines of up to 5°. Available in custom sizes up to a maximum width of 2000mm and a drop of 2000mm, Oceanair offers a wide range of pleated blind fabrics, in various colours and textures, including UV resistant, blackout and sheer options. The SKYSOL Precision has been rigorously tested for the marine environment.
Oceanair’s innovative SKYSOL Mini pleated blind has been designed specifically for portlights with cost and quality in mind. The key feature is the mini size with the design incorporating a custom 14mm pleat creating a blind unit 30% smaller than anything comparable on the market and giving the most compact and neat style.
Designed to exceed customer requirements, SKYSOL Mini is available in either white or beige and in a number of sizes up to a maximum width of 600mm and a drop of 300mm. The pleated fabric selected is UV resistant, blackout and colour co-ordinated to the hardware. An elegant and affordable shading solution, SKYSOL Mini has been thoroughly tested for life at sea.
The Oceanair Mk V SKYscreen is hugely popular - with everyone who sees it! Mk V updates the brilliant basic concept of SKYscreen with softer styling and the easy-to- use magnetic handle from surface and concealed SKYscreens. The wider side supports the edge of the blind and gives a clear open aperture. It also makes it easier to fit to the head lining. The new handles reduce the height of the SKYscreen improving hidden installation for round hatches. It has brush strip for extra bug control and 3 radii options to suit all hatches.
Surface SKYscreen is a surface mounted sunblind and flyscreen system for hatches and draws on ten years' SKYscreen design development.
Since its launch last spring Surface SKYscreen has thoroughly penetrated the US power and sailboat market. The picture shows a Surface SKYscreen. A version of the Surface SKYscreen for round hatches is also available. Surface SKY- screen has a soft edge low profile cassette, is lightweight and unobtrusive in white or beige. An optional through deck liner system is available to make installation quick and easy, for boatbuilder or boat owner.
"There is a huge opportunity for new sales in the OEM and retail markets with this lower priced product," said Oceanair MD Andy FitzGerald.
We look forward to more sales in Europe following the boat show season.
