A Hallmark for US Design Firm and Turkey's RMK Marine

Nazenin VHarken has supplied the 52 meter (171 ft) Sparkman & Stephens-designed flybridge aluminum ketch, Nazenin V,  with hydraulics, winches and deck hardware. "Our team worked closely with our colleagues at Sparkman & Stephens and RMK throughout this collaborative project so Harken could properly enter the megayacht sector," explained Peter Harken. "We never take a project like this lightly, and coming in as newcomers in the hydraulics field, we have worked tirelessly to make sure everything is right."  Nazenin Deck Gear.
Aboard Oceanographic Research Vessel

Data Cable BlockA sailor, who also works at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, came to us with a request to build several strong, lightweight blocks that were anti-corrosive, self-lubricating, and could handle the marine environment long-term. They would be used to lead cable overboard from the boat and to deliver scientific instruments to the ocean floor. This challenge was right up our alley and we jumped at the chance. The blocks we designed are really big with 500 mm and 750 mm sheave diameters. Why so large? Find  the answer at:  Cable Data Blocks.
