New Swivel Block Range from Barton

3rd November 2009
New Swivel Block Range from Barton

Barton Marine, a leading manufacturer of sail control hardware, will launch a new innovative range of Size '0' Swivel Blocks at the Tullett Prebon London Boat Show in January. The new 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, this is all thanks to the skill and expertise of the Barton design team.

Prices for the new Size '0' Swivel Block range start at Stg£5.98 (RRP) for the plain bearing single swivel excluding shackle rising to Stg£47.15 (RRP) for the ball bearing triple swivel, including becket with cams.

Barton Marine has been producing high-quality and high-durability easy-to-use blocks for the sailing market for over 60 years and their product range now comprises one of the most comprehensive series of blocks available worldwide.
