This year's London Boat Show will see the public launch of our new Size ‘0' Swivel Block range and our new Size ‘0' Stand-up Blocks, which were both recently seen by the trade for the first time at the Marine Equipment Trade Show in Amsterdam.
The compact range of Barton Swivel Blocks has been specifically designed for use on dinghies and dayboats and also for 5mm control line applications on larger yachts. The introduction of the new Size ‘0' Swivel Blocks makes Barton one of only a few manufacturers in the world to offer a complete range of swivelling single, double and triple blocks, thanks to the skill and expertise of the Barton design team.
The new Size ‘0’ Triple Swivel block comes with the option of a becket and cam cleat that can be inverted to give both upward or downward cleating options according to application; these are particularly useful for mainsheet, vang tackles and for powerful dowhhauls.
Prices for the new Size ‘0’ Swivel Block range start at just £5.98 (RRP) for the plain bearing single swivel excluding shackle rising to only £47.15 (RRP) for the ball bearing triple swivel, including becket with cams.
Barton’s new compact Size ‘0’ Stand-Up Block is perfect for both dinghies and day boats and also as a turning block for spinnaker sheets and size ‘0’ mainsheet traveller control lines. The blocks have been extremely well received by both the trade and public due to their great value for money, exceptional strength for their small size and also their good looks. There are two versions of Size ‘0’ Stand-up Blocks available, a plain bearing version which has a recommended retail price of £7.50 ex. VAT and a ball bearing version which will retail for £9.50 ex. VAT
In addition to the new ranges of Size ‘0’ Swivvel and Stand-up Blocks, there will be a wide range of Barton products being displayed by our sole UK distributor Navimo, on stand NO48D.
