Mastervolt Introduces Complete Portfolio of Stylish Shore Connections

16 September 2011

Mastervolt developed a complete range of shore connection cables and all required accessories. The new range is based on the popular CE connector, which is a so-called pin and sleeve connection. This new range is an extension of the existing Mastervolt twist and lock range.

The new range of shore connections comes in power ratings of 16A and 32A and different lengths of cables. In addition converter cables are available as well as extension cables and Y-splitters. All connections cables have moulded waterproof connection designed to survive the harsh marine environment. No salt water will corrode the connection and cause unreliable shore connections. A power indication LED will give you instant feedback on the availability of shore power.

The yacht mounted inlets are manufactured from high grade stainless steel (316) and polished. The quick lock mechanism allows opening even by cold hands after a winter trip. The inlet can be easily mounted by one person, which helps to speed up installation for the aftermarket and for OEM boatyards.

The specially designed power cable is ribbed to prevent it from rolling around on the deck or pontoon. This further enhances the safety features of the shore power connections as it reduces the risk of a person falling over if the cable is stood on as it does not roll around whilst laying on the deck,. Furthermore, the design makes it easier to butterfly the cable after use, and the ribs mean that cable stays cleaner due to the smaller direct contact area.

“The shore power cable is critical to a comfortable experience on board when in a harbour with AC power available,” said Marc Persoon, Mastervolt’s Marketing Manager. “As with every other product we have listened carefully to our customers and based on that feedback we started a new development. We made improvements in many areas from installation, ease of use to durability. On top of all that we made this a real Mastervolt product by look and feel.”

Available in 16A and 32A versions, prices for Shore Power Connections start at: €119 ex vat for 16A cables, and €229 ex vat for 32A cables.
