Marine hardware distributor Thermoboat has introduced its Yachtsman motor mount series. Designed for use aboard sailing vessels and powerboats, Yachtsman mounts reduce engine vibration by as much as 95 percent, according to the company.
Available in models ranging from 77- to 800-pound-per-mount workloads, Yachtsman motor mounts are factory preloaded to appropriate load capacities to eliminate the need for adjustments, according to the company. Polymer construction and gold-passivated zinc plating are used to manufacture the product. The mounts are oil- and fuel-resistant and have a tensile strength equal to 7,500 pounds per square inch, according to the company. The mounts are available through selected dealers and distributors, and have a suggested retail price of $116 to $323. Contact: Thermoboat, (888) 769-8495. www.thermoboat.com
