NEW Catalina 22 & Catalina 30 Boat Curtain Sets In Stock
Sailboat Interiors announces that we now have Catalina 22 & Catalina 30 Boat Curtain Sets in stock at www.sailboat-interiors.com.
Sailboat Interiors new floating boat curtain design does not require specific mounting hardware and allows modern tab curtain sets to be made as in stock items for a variety of boat types. This is great news for many sailboat and boat owners as the standard curtain track systems and their small plastic hardware pieces tend to be flimsy and unreliable never coming close to lasting as long as the strong, durable hulls the are housed in. The first two sets in stock are for Catalina 22 and Catalina 30 sailboats. The Catalina 22 set includes the two privacy curtains. Replacement privacy curtains for the Catalina 22 were discontinued several years ago.
The new “Floating” Boat Curtain design was created by Sailboat Interiors in the spring of 2014. The owner of the Sailboat Interiors had made several frustrating curtain designs for her previous sailboats including the last design which hung using dowels through eye screws placed in existing holes in port window frames. The curtains had to be rolled and tied up with two small ribbons when not in use. To roll up every curtain on the boat each morning was exceptionally time consuming. The curtains were an upgrade to the old-fashioned set that was on the boat previously which had tiny small plastic pieces that fit into an ugly metal track.
Modern tab curtains with top tabs and bottom back tabs aligned creates a beautiful pleat when the curtains are slid to the side and not in use. With the bottom back tabs, the curtain stays close to the window even when the surface is inclined and successfully keeps out all light. Shown here is the hardware that comes standard with the curtain sets, however, there are many other ways to hang the curtains including many options that do not include drilling holes into the boat which include using small clear non-damaging wall hooks turned sideways, small non-damaging adhesive squares to attach small decorative knobs and tiny clear suction cups. These all work successfully to loop the elastic cord around to hang the curtains.
When hanging several curtains together, choose the length of the longest window for all curtains to allow them to be hung evenly. When hanging multiple curtains together, additional eye screws or other mounting hardware can be added between curtains for extra support. When there is a significant difference in window heights, each set of curtain panels needs to be hung individually as is the case in a Catalina 22. Custom, per panel and other options are available.
