The revolutionary Thermo Composite EVA foam material is a totally new innovation in nautical accessories development and sets a new benchmark in design and performance.

New approach

This is a completely new approach to a cleaner design and gives our designer the possiblity to make strong lines. The rigid bags are easy to use under all circumstances.

solution dyed fabric

We are using a single color but we get the texture effect by using beautiful fabrics. The nice sand color fabric is a beautiful Acrylic fabric. The fabric is made in Europe and is solution dyed for strong UV resistance.

heat moulded eva foam

The EVA foam is moulded by heat and the shape is solid. The foam is hard but pleasant to the touch. We aimed for the perfect mix of rigidity and toughness..

The ideology behind choices

inspiration & motivation

During a surf trip to Maui we were inspired by Ohana, we used this inspiration for PROJECT iQ. The results are new modern designed products with far less impact on the environment. We have achieved a significant reduction in CO2, water, chemicals and energy during production.

ohana

We belief in Ohana. Ohana is a Hawaiian word which refers to a person’s extended family, which can include friends and other important social groups.

yacht people

We sailors and yacht people are referred to as one’s leisure time Ohana, or maybe our way of living Ohana. In addition to describing relationship networks, Ohana carries a certain responsibility. When you are part of an Ohana, you have an obligation to take care of those in your circles. And they have an obligation to take care of you.

responsibility

We sailors help each other on land and sea. We share the same stories, we share the love for wind and water and we look after each other. We from G-nautics see the responsibility to make beautiful designed products but also seek for a less as possible impact on our water and environment..

environment

The iQ products are PVC free for a minimum impact on water quality. The fabric is solution dyed for a reduction of CO2, water, chemicals and energy during production. We hope to see and meet you somewhere in our beautiful world on the water and share our Ohana. Aloha!
