Harken – Making Work & Life Safer at Sea

With fifty years in the marine industry, Harken is renowned for innovation that puts world-class sailors at the front. Harken Industrial uses the same design ethos of “strong, light, and less friction” that revolutionized sailing hardware to transform work at sea.  Our fibrous rope winches lead the way in moving load handling away from cranes and heavy machinery to an alternative that’s efficient, portable, and cost effective. Other Harken Industrial solutions like lightweight and low-friction block-and-tackle purchases take the strain off workers while creating new levels of maneuverability and control. Our range of certified systems helps you improve productivity while safeguarding crew working on deck, over the side, at height, and even on the seabed.

Safer at Sea – Superyacht Industry

Increasing pressures to ensure safety compliance, plus a trend to ever-larger superyachts, calls for a fresh approach to health & safety.

Harken’s approach to Safer at Sea mitigates risks to crew by eliminating injuries from routine movements of recreational watercraft and tenders or heavy machinery in engine rooms, as well as effectively responding to incidents such as man-overboard.
