Indratech Cushion Material


Making it’s marine industry debut is a product called “Indratech”; it’s a seat or mattress cushion material made from thick filaments that provide softness but promote a major increase in air circulation compared to foam materials.

IPF’s proprietary manufacturing process is an example of Indratech’s innovation and technology that distinguishes it from all other cushioning products used in furniture and bedding, whether fiber-based or foam. With more than a dozen patents pending, Indratech is on the leading edge of manufacturing technology for the next generation of seating, bedding and acoustical products, where not only comfort and durability are important, but safe, non-toxic, environmentally friendly content is also a primary focus.

IPF is equally suited to traditional, flat product applications such as mattress pads or bench seating, as well as complex, 3-D parts molded for highly unique applications such as aircraft, automotive, RV or boat interiors and luxury furniture. We quickly and easily adapt IPF production for any application.

Indratech currently holds numerous patents for the manufacturing process required to produce this unique fiber product—and Indratech is the only manufacturer of this type of elastomeric material in North America. IPF is suitable for any application where FOAM has historically been used such as seating, bedding, acoustical panels and many others.

Over the years Canadian Yachting has had the pleasure of doing several boat review articles on new Neptunus models and we are familiar with the qualities that Neptunus is famous for. They have all been exceptional yachts, but this is the one I would most want to own myself. It’s a personal choice and a matter of taste as to whether you would prefer to have a sedan express model or a flybridge but in my opinion, the flybridge layout offers some wonderful attributes.

We met with Neptunus Managing Director Jan Willem De Jong this past fall to take the new Neptunus 650F out in Lake Ontario.

The Other Virgin Islands

Sunset off St John

By Mark Stevens

I was first seduced by the United States Virgin Islands during a ferry ride from St. Thomas to Tortola to begin one of our earliest British Virgin Islands charters nearly twenty years ago.

A perfect sunset off St. John with St. Thomas views for backdrop.

Clearing Pillsbury Sound, surrounded by voluptuous emerald mountains as the ferry sliced through royal blue waters, I was struck by the unspoiled ambiance of St. John, the island gliding past our starboard beam and the irresistible charm of a village called Cruz Bay visible from our quarter stern.
