From One Boater to Another
Hurley Marine started with one passionate boater using his know-how to solve boating problems.
The greatest innovations often come from the field, when the inventor finds inspiration to fix a problem while interacting with his surroundings. Which is exactly what happened to longtime Sea Ray owner Todd Hurley more than a decade ago, after a friend asked for a way to conveniently store and dismount an on-deck inflatable dinghy. Todd decided to lend a hand, fashioning a new and innovative system for dinghy storage.
Hurley Marine was born from a passionate boater solving boating needs. And the company’s flagship products, the H2O and Traditional Dinghy Davits, remain the industry’s innovative leader in on-deck dinghy storage. These stylish systems are easily installed onto any standard swim platform while the boat is still docked in the water.
The Hurley Davits act as levers, supporting the weight of the dinghy as it’s pulled aboard. Then, they lock the dinghy in place for secure storage. Placing the dinghy on the swim platform keeps the craft out of the way until it is needed once the main vessel has been anchored. A decade ago, Todd realized this innovation would help out a friend, but today he uses his on-water experience to help fellow boaters worldwide.
