New Products


For boaters who need gensets that produce between 6 and 8 kW of AC power, operate equipment without interruption and maximize precious space, Next Generation Power Engineering offers its new line of Yanmar-powered, 1,800 rpm units.

The 6 and 8 kW gensets utilize the same advanced technology incorporated in all of Yanmar’s renowned diesel propulsion engines. When it’s time for servicing, a Yanmar-qualified technician can maintain both engines.
These sets from Next Generation are among the smallest on the market, especially in length. The 6 kW unit measures 27" long x 16" wide x 21" high. the 8 kW model is 28" long x 16" wide x 21" high.

Both models offer one-side serviceability, with all maintenance points within easy reach. They are fully marinized and include fresh water heat exchanger cooling, engine instrumentation and tinned wiring.

The price of the 6 kW Yanmar genset is $5,241. the 8 kW model costs $5,784.

Fitovers Sunglasses Introduces New Johnathan Paul Signature Series

Designed in Australia to withstand the punishment of an ostentatious day in the outback, the new series offers a serious sun protective alternative with style and function to prescription eyeglass wearers.

The frames boast both front and side lenses providing complete peripheral UV protection. Spring hinges on the temples add flexibility and help provide a comfortable all-day fit. The frames are molded from crystal nylong and are available in matte black, tortoiseshell, champagne or charcoal and carry the distinctive Fitovers logo embossed on a silver plaque.

The Jonathan Paul Series lenses utilize Polardynamix (PDX) lens technology. Rather than “painting-on” a polarized film layer that can rub away, this revolutionary new technology builds the polarization optics right into scratch resistant polycarbonate lenses. The end result is that both the front and side lenses provide superior UV protection that lasts. Lenses are coated with a hydrophobic water resistant coating and are available in either gray or amber.

The new Series is available in two sizes and fit over 98-percent of all prescription eyewear.
As with all Fitover sunglasses the Jonathan Paul Series is backed with a lifetime warranty against defects in materials or workmanship. Neck cords and cases are provided with each pair.

New Table Pedestal Eliminates Deck Hole

For years, installing a solidly mounted boat table meant drilling a hole in the flooring to accommodate the pedestal. Although effective, the opening that resulted was often unsightly and a hazard when the table was removed. Springfield Marine, supplier of innovative marine seating and hardware, eliminated the need for a hole with its new Twist Lock Table Pedestal.

The pedestal utilizes a surface-mounted, low profile base to anchor the post. A quick twisting action solidly connects the two units, resulting in a single, firmly-locked unit. Removal of the pedestal is accomplished by simply reversing the process.

The low-profile base is only 5/8” tall, ensuring an inconspicuous appearance when the pedestal is not in place. Thanks to its 7” diameter and 5-3/4” bolt pattern, the base provides maximum support and durability under heavy loads. 

The post is offered with a locking or non-locking table mount, and comes in standard heights of 14”, 25” and 27”.

Retail price of the Twist Lock Table Pedestal with 3-year limited warranty is between $54.99 and $88.99, depending on individual markets.
