Kayak Rack for Sailboats - Stanchion Mounted

Our Kayak Rack is designed to be mounted on the existing stanchions of your sailboat. They are designed to be of a height to fit between the lifelines, and also rotate inside and outside the lifelines. This allows you to carry your kayaks inside if your going through locks or whatever, when they might be in the way, or outside since most side decks are narrow, so swinging them outside while at anchor allows you the full use of the side deck. Custom Made in America of solid 316 series stainless steel for superior performance and weather resistance in the harsh marine environment.

What are the Benefits of a Mounting a Kayak Rack on the Sailboat’s Stanchion?

With this kayak rack, we wanted to provide sailboats with the ability to safely and securely hold the kayaks on their stanchions, with the versatility to have them inside or outside the lifelines. The kayak racks include the clevis pin removable armature, and the bronze oil embedded flange bearings that pivot nicely on the existing stanchion. All of the materials are of the highest quality, using 316 Stainless Steel.
