Our Stern Platforms
Unique to Arba Nautika, why will these revolutionise your boating experience?
There are a few reasons these enhance your experience on the water so significantly;
Swimming - As you may have experienced before getting back into a boat after swimming can be a very difficult exercise as you flop over the high side back into the comfort and safety of the boat. No more, these platforms offer staged access for you to retain your dignity and reduce the risk of injury, especially essential for elderly or young guests.
Buoyancy & Stability - Having this extra buoyancy at the rear of the boat where the heavy engine sits enhances the performance of the boat and quickens its ability to get onto the plane as the stern of the boat is less inclined to dig into the water. They also act as stabilisers meaning as you walk around or side to side the boat is much more stable under foot, great for those with sea sickness.
Protection for your engine - Lets face it we all make mistakes but with these platforms sitting either side of the most expensive part of the boat this design is much more forgiving as you will likely hit them instead of your precious engine, meaning you are safer too as you protect your lifeline. They also help deflect loose rope away from your propeller preventing prop wrap.
Getting on and off - When moving from pontoon to boat if stepping up this can be particularly difficult for older and younger persons, these platforms offer a grounding to step onto at a safe level allowing a much more predictable and comfortable transition.
