"That cap looks sick!"

- Carlo Huisman, Professional sailor for the America's Cup and Volvo Ocean Race

"The hat is perfect, nice idea."

- Fabian Graf, German national sailing team, Olympic 2020 hopeful

"Through my life as a sailing professional I've lost countless hats to the sea, but I've still got my original Boat Brim. I wish I had this hat years ago! I don't have to worry about clamping down my cap or risk losing it off my head when the breeze kicks up and I need to focus on sailing."

- Don Rotzien, Winner of U.S. Sailing's Excellence in Instruction award as the top US Instructor

The Problem We Solved

Sailors, boaters, and outdoor enthusiasts lose countless hats to the wind each year. Being avid sailors and inventors, we solved this problem with a patented, high-performance hat brim design that lets the wind pass right through yet still blocks the sun.

Proven Technology

Boat Brim is the only patented windproof hat technology proven to fit the needs of high-performance outdoor sports enthusiasts. It is the perfect element of tech-driven differentiation for your product or brand, helping to attract new customers and build loyalty. The engineering and design has been rigorously tested under the most extremereal-world circumstances...up to 100mph winds! Boat Brims can be manufactured and assembled in the U.S. or overseas at a low cost using standard injection molding technology. We have our own CAD and mold templates to share, but are happy to work with your team to enable a wide range of in-house customization. 

Demonstrated Demand

We've sold thousands of first-generation hats to retail customers in our short existence as a company, largely through word of mouth. We recently surveyed our customers about their experience with Boat Brim, and the results speak for themselves: 95% have a positive reaction to Boat Brim, and 98% are likely to use Boat Brim instead of another hat when engaged in outdoor activities such as boating.

      

We also created a Limited Edition collection, which proves that customers pay on average 60% higher prices for a brand name hat with a Boat Brim compared to the original version. On average, Boat Brim can double your profit per hat. See for yourself, Boat Brim looks great with an established outdoor brand.

 

IP Protection

We worked with a top IP law firm to secure excellent intellectual property protection. This guarantees your exclusive right as the licensee to manufacture and sell Boat Brim technology. A Utility Patent with broad claims protection, and a Design Patent with two renderings form the core of your protection, as the licensee. See below for more details.

Next Steps

Since our founding in 2017, our mission was to design and build the best product, test its feasibility with different markets and demographics, and obtain strong IP protection. With the granting of two patents in 2019, we have achieved all our early goals and are now turning our focus to wholesale markets. This is your chance to ride the wave and make a big splash with Boat Brim technology.
