Specialist retail distribution
for nearly 45 years
NVequipment is the international leader in the outdoor boat protection market and is recognized by boat owners as the benchmark brand in the boating industry for its highly technical and durable products. We distribute our products exclusively through a network of partner distributors, specialised in boating, which we select with care.
The best in outdoor protection: durability, comfort and technicality.
Severely put to the test during sailing or at anchor, NV products are made to withstand the harsh marine weather, whichever seas you are sailing…
As a designer and manufacturer of biminis, we have perfectly mastered the combination of two skills: mechanics and flexible materials. The precision and technical rigor of our profession means we can outfit your cockpit with a product adapted to each model of boat.
