Development of Habitent ... an adjustable cockpit enclosure by Hamilton Innovation
The HABITENT came to life through a need to provide both an external shelter and extra living space on our boat. Living on board can be a dull experience if you are unable to utilise the deck area.

Investigating the various options we discovered that the current ranges of canopies and enclosures are limited in their application by price, size, weight and unsuitable for easy storage and handling. The canopies and shelters comprise mainly of permanent bespoke fixtures and have a high cost. These products haven’t changed in years.

INNOVATION, DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT...

We have worked in product and interior design for many years and felt up to the challenge of developing an alternative to suit the needs of today’s outdoor leisure market.
The brief was to design a product that would fulfill the following...

Be robust, adaptable and fit a wide range of boats and sizes
Be a ready made cockpit awning/ canopy
Provide shelter from most moderate weather conditions.
Be lightweight and easy to store
Require NO permanent fixings to the boat.
Be quick to erect and dismantle
Dry easily.
Require minimal maintenance
Be a less expensive alternative to traditional canvas and steel boat enclosures
Maximise headroom through from companionway to stern
Obviously we enjoy a challenge!
Following draft designs we made an initial prototype using – shower curtains and odds and ends found at the local caravan outlet! It was a huge success.
It enabled us to sit out of the intense heat, the drizzling rain (even sudden downpours) and the sneaky winds. From the research we had carried out we realised that this was quite a unique product and worthy of some further development and investment in better materials!
Having conceived and proved the design and tested the original prototype, we decided to approach one of the leading tent and awning manufacturers and suppliers to assist us with the further development of the design
Some time and several prototypes later the HABITENT was born.
This collaboration has ensured that the HABITENT meets all the high standards that are now demanded by boat owners.

If you own or use a yacht and MOOR within the Inland waterways or coastal areas, and require a robust and low cost, flexible living space/shelter from the weather, the HABITENT will provide an alternative cockpit enclosure to enhance your outdoor living enjoyment. For the delight of our family we can even put up twinkling fairy lights at night and the children want to sleep in it over night!

IF YOU ALREADY HAVE A TRADITIONAL ENCLOSURE, the flexibility of the HABITENT design offers many features that will benefit your sailing experience and far outweigh any other alternative shelter.

The HABITENT is a now an internationally registered product selling globally.
