Bamar, deck equipment is technological jewel
Born from the insight, passion and 20 years of experience of professional sailing enthusiasts who have created with extraordinary innovative ability technological jewels for sailing yachts of all sizes, from small pleasure boats to mega yachts: this is Bamar. Innovation is the hallmark of the company, which is now a worldwide reference of sea-goers.
It began in 1977 with the history of Bamar, which has been synonymous with roller shutter systems for more than 40 years. Thanks to continuous technological development and the use of innovative materials, it is constantly developing by exporting all over the world. And it equips the most prestigious yachts with its technology.
In June 2015, the brand was acquired by Soluzioni Meccaniche srl, which thus continues the development of the brand. Innovation is the hallmark of today’s leader in shipboard rigging management systems, sail furling systems, hydraulic and electrical systems, and accessories.
Today, thanks to renewed collaborations with the most prestigious national and international shipyards, it is “on board” with its furling systems on: Mylius, Solaris, Swan, Grand Soleil, Vismara Marine, Amel, Baltic, Discovery Yacht, Perini Navi, MaxiDolphin, Sunreef Yachts, DVS Yachts, Southern Wind Shipyars.
From the smallest manual furlers to, literally, the largest sailing yacht in the World via “series” supplies for the most prestigious national and non-national Shipyards that have chosen Bamar to equip their hulls. It thus confirms that it “literally” has no production limits and is one of the World’s excellences in this field capable of meeting all requirements.
Today’s engineering at Soluzioni Meccaniche develops high-tech CAD projects and is engaged in experimenting with new materials and solutions that can obviate any possible unforeseen navigational issues. The complex study of materials and strength of components makes it possible to decrease weights and provide the design with an additional guarantee of performance and safety. The validity of the innovations is evidenced by awards at prestigious international venues and by sea tests on racing boats that become severe test beds. Finally, the company holds the International Patent RollGen, the revolutionary system that allows for the furling of non-inferred sails.
Latest “born” is GFSE8, which completes the range of self-aligning winders on spherical fulcrum flanged on deck. It is suitable for stays up to -30 and in “custom” version up to -40. It is made with the same features, materials and construction characteristics as the entire existing range that equips Yachts from 60′ to 100′. Compact in size it too exploits a planetary gear motor capable of high performance and very low power consumption with thus great efficiency. It is equipped with an easily accessible emergency coupler for winding in case of failure.
