The Searug STORY

Back in 1970, Peter Howes was racing in the Sydney to Hobart. It was a cold and wet race and while he shivered in his bunk, Peter thought, "There's got to be a better way".

Fast forward to 1971, Peter had designed the now iconic SeaRug.

Many racing yachts are equipped with a SeaRug for every bunk.

Safety orange on one side, cobalt blue on the other, the SeaRug's unique design allows your own body heat to dry you and keep you warm. Every ocean racing yacht should be equipped with SeaRugs.


100% Australian owned and manufactured since 1971 by Peter and his family.
