Boat manufacturer raises onboard comfort to new levels

Using LINAK® actuators has helped a French boat manufacturer improve comfort on board its vessels.

Prestige – a branch under the world-renowned yacht manufacturer Beneteau Group – has successfully introduced electric adjustment of hatches, skylights, tables and sofas on board their boats.

Utilising the fact that several LINAK® actuators come with an integrated controller (IC) has paved the way for a new and far simpler way to create parallel drive solutions. It has also enabled the manufacturer to offer ship owners more precise control and positioning.
