In the limited space of engine rooms and belowdecks storage, one size does not usually fit all. Aero Tec Laboratories (ATL) kept this in mind when designing its inflatable, custom-built FueLocker line of fuel bladders. The extra storage capacity for fuel allows yachts with lower ranges to reach far off destinations and adds a measure of security in case of storms or malfunction. Custom fabrication capabilities uses military-spec rubberized material that can accommodate both diesel and gasoline. It also allows ATL to tailor the product to a yacht’s particular needs and space requirements. Based in New Jersey, the company’s products have been used in the military as well as aviation, motorsports, and marine industries for nearly 45 years.
