Summer screens

Perhaps some of you would be interested to see my window screens for summer. Very strong and convenient, the screens allow air to pass what is good when we open the windows, they protect the furnitures and electronic devices from direct sunlight, we can still see the outside from inside but people from outside can't see the inside of the boat. Moreover, the screens are a perfect mosquito netting.

BATYLINE FABRIC : "A synthetic woven fabric pioneered for use in furniture and as window canvas for RV and pleasure boats. Batyline is extremely strong and provides full support whilst remaining supple. The weave allows air and liquid to pass freely through it, whilst the synthetic nature of the fabric prevents any deterioration in humid atmospheres. Due to this fact, and also given its excellent UV resistance; antifungal treatment and open weave that does not return water; the Batyline fabric is particularly suitable for garden, pool side furniture and yacht canvas.
Batyline canvas is also very resistant to tearing, does not distort and is easy to maintain. Cleaning the fabric is simple, needing only a brush and soapy water, and it is also environmentally friendly - Oeko Tex label (fabric confidence - control of non-toxic substances)".

Olivier,


Those screens look great on Lutin. What a nice addition to your boat. We have screens on Beachcomber and it definitely is nice to be able to open the windows to let the breeze flow through but keep out the bugs.


In that photo it looks like the material is a fabric that has been coated with some type of coating? Also, I looked at their website and it appears there are two different weave patterns, one much more densely woven than the other. Which weave pattern did you choose?

Hi Mike,

Always pleased to read from you, many thanks for your kind comment.

I did choose the less densely weave pattern, what is the most suitable for canvas on a boat. I forgot to explain my screens are attached on the outside of the windows.

The more densely weave pattern is only for garden (or deck) furniture like armchairs or sofas.

I attached a picture of an outdoor armchair made with the more densely weave pattern.

Best regards to you and your family,

Olivier

We have the same screens on our aft deck. They are great. They cut the temp by 10degrees as well.
Provide 1 way privacy. Wouldn't be without them.

You are right about the temp cut as well. Sorry, I forgot to say that. Thanks.

Summer screens

I really like this! Need some bug screens.

I have snap-type sunbrella window covers on the outside of my windows I use when away. Could something like this be retrofitted? How would the area between the snaps be sealed against bugs? Or is this not how it works.

Thank you Olivier... I'm still learning and enjoying the lessons. I wish I was half as smart as my Daddy.

Cardude, I have snap-on screens on Beachcomber and they're made of a material called Pfifertex(sp?). The edges of each piece of screen is doubled over so it's fairly stiff. When a piece is snapped on, the edges are tight against the sides of the windows and there's no room for bugs to get between the screen and the window frame. .

Very nice - I have a similar set and agree with all of your comments.
Did you make these yourself?

For anyone interested in doing some of their own canvas work this is a great starter project.

Thank you Jonza !

I got the idea last summer looking at some mega yachts moored in Antibes what had these screens on the windows of the navigation bridge. I went to a local upholstery and ordered 3 screens for a test. I was happy with them then I ordered more screens for all the windows of the salon.

In September 2015 I paid 1000 euros / 1100 USD for 11 screens for the windows of the salon, fabric + custom fit + installation with strap-type by the upholstery, all included.

I will be aboard after tomorrow and will post pictures of the details, straps, etc...

You mean you are in Palma de Mallorca ? I went there with my former Grand Banks 42' classic, it's beautiful.

Many thanks Bacchus !

No I was not able to make these myself, I ordered to a upholstery in Antibes, who custom fitted and installed them aboard.

The link you posted is very interesting, thank you !

Yes, Iīv lived in Palma 7-8 years. It is beautiful but a crazy expensive place to keep Your yacht Lotīs of work for a tech like me though Btw, the city changes its name from Palma to Palma de Mallorca everytime thereīs a new local government... Palma is the oldest and Palma de Mallorca was invented so the poor tourists wouldnīt go to the Canaries ( Las Palmas) by mistake....

Just remember for privacy the screens can be inside or outside.

For temperature reduction inside , only outside mounting works.

FF,
You are right, about privacy it doesn't matter inside or outside. As a mosquito / bugs netting, in my opinion and from my experience it's a lot better to have the screens outside the frames of the windows than inside.
