Frey in Slano - A Beneteau Oceanis 45 project

The boys from the Frey team were lucky enough to make three wonderful visits to Slano, a beautiful coastal village located 27 kilometers northwest of Dubrovnik in our latest project.

Bimini top & Sprayhood for Beneteau Oceanis 45

To introduce you to the story - we were contacted by a charter group ''Simple Sail'' to manufacture a bimini top and a sprayhood for their sailing boat Beneteau Oceanis 45, located in ACI Marina ''Veljko Barbieri'' in Slano. They needed the products to be installed as soon as possible as the sailing season was nearing. We were certainly up for the challenge ;)

Three trips - Measurement, Templates & Installation

After the first two trips to Slano where the boys took the meausrements on the Beneteau Oceanis 45 and made the templates for the job, the third trip was reserved for the actual installation of the bimini top and sprayhood which we manufactured in a short period of time in order to match the deadline of our clients.

Sunbrella fabric for aesthetics & performance

Like every other job, we took this one with maximum importance, looking out for every detail. The aesthetic appeal, including every curve, every stitch, was given our fullest attention. The beige Sunbrella acrylic fabric, that we used for both bimini top and sprayhood, ensured high-quality performance, such as UV protection, fade resistance and water repellency.

Happy sailing on Oceanis 45

As you can assume, this cooperation with ''Simple Sail'' and their lovely personnel has been rather pleasurable. Both sides left happy and we from Frey wish happy sailing to the future passengers of this Beneteau Oceanis 45 sailing boat :D
