Barton deck fittings chosen for latest Bembridge Swan Class day boat
Barton Marine fittings are now fitted as standard on all new Bembridge Swan Class day boats, built in the UK by the Bembridge Swan Boat Company. The latest addition to the Bembridge Swan Class, which was established in 1955, can be sailed single-handed, yet can also accommodate up to four adults. Today, these day boats are constructed from GRP and include a Barton Marine package.
Michael Quinn of the Bembridge Swan Boat Company commented: "When we developed our latest design, our brief was to build a day boat that could be sailed on family days out as well as club racing. We also wanted this day boat to be similarly priced to that of a dinghy.
"Barton Marine was our logical route for reasonably priced, well-designed and high quality deck fittings, suitable for a day boat and racing. We have also been pleased with the product availability, which has enabled us to meet our production schedules and also gives us peace of mind should customers need to purchase any future replacement parts through a local stockist."
The deck hardware includes the Barton 20mm T Track, T Track bullseye, swivel with cam - for the jib, Barton size 2 blocks and a stand up block with cam for the mainsail. Barton size 3 fiddle blocks as well as the K Cam with pillar fairlead for the centreplate.
