Tides Marine To Celebrate 25th Anniversary

25 Years


DEERFIELD BEACH, FLORIDA – The Tides Marine team will be celebrating the company’s 25th anniversary in Tampa Convention Center booth 917 at next week’s International BoatbuildersExposition and Conference.

Founded in 1991, the company’s longevity can be attributed to solving two common problems –leaky shaft seals and mainsails that are difficult to raise and lower single-handedly.

ABS-approved, Tides Marine Self Aligning SureSeal® shaft seals are widely recognized as the industry standard.


SureSeal shaft seals feature housings manufactured from strong, durable fiber-composite material that are unaffected by
temperature changes and will not absorb water. Integral PTFE® bearings extend their operating life under normal operating conditions.SureSeal


The SureSeal is connected to the vessel's stern tube using an articulating, single-convolution hose. The hose design automatically positions the SureSeal® the correct operating distance from the stern tube. No measurements are required. The SureSeal® design incorporates a removable front cap, which improves access to the lip seal. A worn lip seal can be replaced, even while the vessel is in the water.


The Tides Marine Sail Track & Slide System is a high performance, low friction mainsail luff track and slide system built to handle the
increased loads and demands of SureSealtoday's full or partially battened, large roach and high aspect mainsails. When installed, the mainsail will raise with ease and drop when the halyard is released.


The Tides system offers minimal stack height, less weight aloft, and low friction performance rivaling systems costing three times as much that have to be installed by skilled labor in order to properly mount them. The track comes coiled in a box and can be installed by the owner in less than an hour, with no special tools.

Tides is also a leading supplier of durable, water-tight and abrasion-resistant bearing products that eliminate metal-on-metal contact and the associated problems of abrasion, electrolysis and corrosion.

Tides Marine also distributes Aqualuma® underwater LED lights and MATE horns, pumps and rub rail.

Aqualuma LEDs are the lights of choice for many of the world’s leading boat manufacturers, including Mastercraft, Hatteras, Sunseeker, Horizon, Azimut, Beneteau, Merritt, Spencer, Ocean Alexander and Riviera. The Aqualuma LED range features cutting edge technology and a worldwide distribution network, backed by superior, 24/7/365 customer service.

The MATE product range features: bilge, water, deck washing, diesel and oil transfer pumps; IMO/USCG approved horns; patented Radial™ cold-fit rub rail; and the unique, stylish stainless steel Sphaera rub rail, co-extruded with rigid and shockproof PVC.
