Marine Energy Systems (MES) has been appointed as an official Sleipner main dealer.
“In our capacity as the main dealer, we are privileged to introduce world-class technical solutions aimed at enhancing safety and comfort at sea,” said John Ainsworth, MES MD. “This new affiliation opens avenues for collaborative ventures with end users, trade installers, and OEM boat builders.”
He added: “Serving as a Sleipner main dealer seamlessly aligns with our core values and unwavering commitment to providing our customers with top-tier technical support and products.”
Sleipner products encompass bow and stern thrusters, stabilisers, steering products and anchor windlasses for leisure and commercial vessels.
The company’s latest products include its Vector Fins which will be available later in 2024.
The fins have a concave shape that has been designed to direct their forces in a more efficient direction than flat fins for roll stabilisation to benefit stabilisation in anchoring and cruising situations.
The fins will create lift while cruising, reducing the drag of a boat’s hull.
They are available in a range of sizes to suit a variety of craft from 45ft up to 150ft and have been constructed from a layered vacuum injected vinyl ester compound covering a pre-moulded foam for a light-weight.
Other features include keyed and colour-coded connectors for easier installation and the incorporation of an electric actuator for quieter operation.
MES represents a number of brands including Dockmate, SEA.AI, Molabo and U Safe.
