Even the most devoted sun worshippers sometimes need a respite from the heat and glare of direct sunlight, but when you’re on board a yacht, every ounce of extra weight matters. The product designers at Multiplex GmbH, a company based in Bremen, know this well and have developed a range of carbon-fiber yacht components including a sun awning system that can be installed in a matter of minutes. This “plug-and-play” system includes 5-inch (outside diameter) carbon-fiber posts and the necessary canvas and fittings to secure an awning in up to 30 knots of wind. The elegant sailcloth can be matched to the yacht’s color scheme and fittings can be mounted directly to the yacht where no posts can be placed. The entire system is delivered in custom-made bags for easy storage.
