The company specialized in nautical components, founded in 1967 by Giovanni Besenzoni, presents three novelties, which will enrich its rich catalogue. The P 242 Seagull helm seat model, with its unrivalled ergonomic design, will now be attached to a much wider electric base with room for the wiring of an array of joysticks and controllers to be fitted to the armrests. The diamond stitching can now be customised with stitching and threads in a variety of colours to choose from. The P 220 Free Style fixed helm seat, with a flip-up bolster allowing the helmsman to stand, has been installed onto a special shock-absorbent, cushioned base, offering absolute comfort, even on rougher seas and long journeys. The Miss PI 461 aluminium gangway, with an extension of 290-cm, has been especially designed for small and medium-sized motor and sailing boats. One of its main features is the aluminium structure, which makes it extremely lightweight without impairing stability. The new full-width gangway provides more space, making it easier and safer to board the vessel. When used as a mini crane, it can lift loads weighing up to 200 kilos.
