Yachting Monthly - - GEAR OF THE YEAR -

A swing­ing moor­ing is an eco­nom­i­cal way to keep your boat. Moor­ing buoys haven’t changed much over the years, but the in­no­va­tive Mara Buoy aims to make pick­ing up a moor­ing much eas­ier. Un­like con­ven­tional buoys, Mara Buoys (static and dy­namic) in­clude a cen­tral gal­vanised col­umn that ex­tends ver­ti­cally above the wa­ter­line up to deck level. In­side this, the bot­tom of the moor­ing line is shack­led di­rectly to the riser chain. It’s easy for the helms­man to see dur­ing the whole ma­noeu­vre and is easy to pick up even with­out a boat hook.
