CARIBONI and UBI MAIOR ITALIA® are proud to announce the birth of a new collaboration. Two world boating excellences who provide their technical knowledge available for future and ambitious projects. This cooperation will create a solid landmark for designers and owners of sailing both in the cruising world and in high level regattas.
Carbonautica’s ultra light monocoque Y-spoke carbon wheels are unique in design, strength and quality. We offer two design options: Elegance ( E ) design with curved spokes and the Sport (S) design with straight spokes. The wheels are built as one piece, combining strength and weight minimization with the finest materials available. They have no weak joints or secondary bondings.
All the performance of carbon at a fraction of the cost. The GFC (Glass Fibre Composite) wheel is made in a mold using a similar technique to that used to produce the Carbon wheels, however the anodized aluminium hub is integrated into the mold, so that its weight is similar to that of the carbon version, but it is a third of the price.
The wheels are supplied with two hub options: A solid universal hub with adapters for any steering brandor a solid Carbon hub system for the serious racer, which is available at a modest extra cost . You can also customize the design of your whheel as Carbonautica is capable of taking a design from concept to full production.
Butler is a new automatic folding fairlead that can be installed on motor boats and sail boats. It is an invaluable aide in delicate mooring manoeuvres for medium and large boats. Butler uses a remote controlled hydraulic cylinder, a very simple though very efficient piece of engineering. This allows you to transfer via a remote control a hauled mooring line from the winch to the bollard in all safety, speed and ease.
No need to hold a hauled line / The line stays hauled at all times / No more rolling hitches / You can cast anchor single handed / The boat is locked into position while mooring.
You can hold the mooring line with Butler and undo hands-free the auled line from its cleat safely leaving the end of the line on the dock.
