Taco Metals debuts new catalog

Taco Metals introduced a new master marine catalog that features concise product information, sharp product photos and dimensional renderings and includes product installation and application recommendations.

The 90-page brochure is geared for boatbuilders, dealers, canvas and metal fabricators, repair yards and other marine industry professionals.

“We are confident our new master marine catalog makes product selection quick and easy for our customers,” Taco marketing manager Elana Murray said in a statement.

In other news, the Miami-based company expanded its line of helm chairs to include the new Coastal, which is designed for inshore boats of 20 to 25 feet. The chair is offered in a deluxe version that includes folding bolster and arm rests, as well as a standard option with fixed seat and optional arm rests.

“Offering both versions, engineered with or without armrests, accommodates the need for free movement in smaller boats, especially center console vessels,” sales and marketing vice president Mike Kushner said in a statement.
