METSTRADE presents a traditional opportunity for companies to announce new products and this year was no exception.

Dometic introduced the next generation smart trim tab system which brings a completely new level of precision control and many technical advantages including user programmability. A true game changer for the industry which opens up many possibilities for boat builders and boaters. Dometic has launched a new Smart Trim Tab System designed to give owners of inboard/outboard and outboard powered boats a level of precision control never before possible.

Other new product releases this week includes the popular performance range of Tii sailing blocks from Allen that has just gained a new addition, the long awaited 60mm version. Allen Tii blocks are designed for soft attachment applications. Ideal for use in systems where weight saving is a necessity, there is no requirement for a metal shackle or maximum performance is demanded.
