BeCharter collaborates in a Castro product testing
BeCharter has started a collaboration with the company Castro, world leader in the manufacture of buoys, fenders and floats. Castro is currently developing and perfecting his fender covers and chose BeCharter to make the covers product testing. For this product testing, we have equipped our new sailboat Beneteau Oceanis 45 "Dreams" with Castro's new fenders of the NFD series and the covers to analyze.
Their desire to always seek excellence and maximum quality in their products has led the Castro company to an exhaustive work and research on the textile materials with which to manufacture the covers, with the aim of differentiating themselves from the covers that are currently in the market. In fact, it is usually a product of rapid wear, because of the conditions which it is exposed to, like being out in the open and the constant friction, which has been a challenge for Castro. For this reason, the fender covers of the NFD series by Castro are designed and manufactured with a technical fabric 100% polyester ultra-resistant to the sun and saltpeter, which prevents wear and repels dirt. With the product testing that they have begun to carry out with our Dreams sailboat, they will analyze in detail the evolution of these new defenses covers throughout the months.
After many decades of experience in the fishing sector, Castro has also entered the recreational boating sector, with its line of high-end products Castro Signature. In 2017 they launched the NFD, an innovative design fender with a larger work surface than a traditional one, and recently the line of covers for the NFD has arrived, the protagonists of the product testing on board our Dreams. This sailboat is our latest addition to the Barcelona fleet, a new four cabins from 2019 that offers a very good option if you are looking to rent a sailboat in Barcelona with a group of friends or family.
