Our Mission

Our products are designed for sailors, by sailors and focus on:

  • Rugged design - every component must be able to survive sea conditions and constant use

  • Field maintenance - "If you can't repair it, maybe it shouldn't be on board." - Lin and Larry Pardey

  • Innovation - Challenge the norm of what we accept as "good enough". Our products make life on board easier and more fun

  • Safety - A compromise in safety defeats the purpose of the product

I had the idea to launch Lionfish during a long overnight watch while sailing past Martinique. 

3 years earlier, I had quit my career as a mechanical engineer to become a sailing yacht captain. I sailed in the Mediterranean and Caribbean on yachts ranging from  38 foot mono-hull to 60 foot catamaran. 

 

On many boats ranging in size and age, I noticed that each was typically equipped with similar hardware. Through maintenance and upkeep, I began to realize the designs of many common products are typically weak, prone to corrosion, or hard to repair.  

With this in mind, I set out to outline a product that minimized defects from corrosion, increased product lifetime, was easily maintainable, and added new functionality.
