Electric linear actuators are the perfect solution to many yacht marine automation projects, like this boat bow table lift. Space constraints mean counter and floor space are at a premium so many things need to do double duty. This Boston Whaler 370 Outrage uses a Firgelli Actuator to raise and lower a table at the touch of a button. In the raised position it's the perfect spot for lunch on the bow of the boat and in the lowered position it turns into a sun bed.
The Firgelli Automations actuator used in this application is the FA-400-12, a heavy duty rod actuator. For help selecting the correct Actuator for your boat automation project contact our tech team at firstname.lastname@example.org
