Manufactured in Italy, these revolutionary cleats won the DAME Award at METS 2021. Mooring large boats alongside a pontoon is often arduous, especially with adverse weather conditions. The Joy self tailing cleat has been designed to assist with the manoeuvre by providing a direct pull on your mooring lines.
The range of motorised cleats includes 3 model sizes covering boats up to 70ft in overall length. All models are finished in stainless steel AISI 316L to complement existing mooring deck hardware on board. The product listings on this page all feature horizontal motor configuration. The models for 35-50 ft yachts are also available with vertical motor configuration by special request.
The operational design features the use of a dual foot switch for controlled reversing as well as pulling. The integrated rope gypsy provides excellent grip on the mooring line. The hands free operation of the cleat allows the user to handle the warp comfortably as the docking manoeuvre progresses. In an emergency, the single wrap required to keep tension on the line can be easily released.
