There's nothing quite like walking the halls at METS, at the front of the marine industry's most sophisticated technology with its most creative minds. Harken lives for this. We've missed it. And we're delighted to be back in 2021.

The Harken stand location has changed this year. Find Harken in hall 5 at stand #361. Close by in the same hall, you'll find our former Dutch distributor and our new subsidiary, On Deck at stand #431.

During challenging times, count on Harken to keep innovating. Since the last METS, we've launched important new products, which will be on display including:

  • Harken's DAME award-nominated AirĀ® winch 900 which provides a 9000 kg working load while weighing just 31 kg. Its closest competitor weights 77% more.
  • The new MKIV Ocean manual headsail furling line, engineered on the proven MKIV platform and configured for cruising, at a less racy price;
  • The Vang-Master rigid boom vang, which uses air rather than squeaky springs to maintain optimal boom height;
  • The new Harken integral hydraulic backstay cylinder, designed to simply deliver reliable, repeatable settings for years;
  • Also on display will be a complete array of products for all of our segments including the growing full line of CLR (compact light retractable) powered mooring winches that offer power comparable to the competition while requiring a fraction of the under-deck space.
Come by hall 5, stand #361 at METS. We look forward to working together!
