Product of the Week: The Hatch Fan    

'Taku Hatch Fan'    .

When you are swinging on a hook there's nothing nicer than the cool air pushed through your saloon by a wind scoop - and it doesn't cost power.

However, in a marina, aside from getting an air conditioner, it can be very hot and sticky if the weather decides. That's where a 'Hatch Fan' might come in handy, also acceptable because you're most likely connected to shore power.


The 12-volt Caframo Taku Hatch Fan is designed to provide both powerful ventilation to remove hot, stale air from the cabin and quiet circulation to move air throughout.

A unique locking suction cup mounting system allows the fan to be installed directly on hatch glass in seconds, with no hole drilling or fasteners required.

The pivoting fan head can be swiveled 360° to allow the Taku to exhaust stale air out of the cabin or to draw fresh air in through the hatch. The fan head can also be swung down into the cabin, allowing a cooling breeze to be directed wherever it is needed.

In powerful Turbo mode, the hatch fan will circulate air in or out of the cabin at a rate of over 500 cubic feet per minute. At the medium Comfort setting, the fan can re-circulate fresh air in a 36’ boat eight times per hour – the optimum air volume change rate recommended by the Westlawn Institute of Marine Technology.

Easy to use, push button controls operate all fan functions and the built-in LED cabin lamp. When not in use, the Taku hatch fan can be folded up out of the way and locked into its yoke against the hatch glass.
