Heyday Inboards, based in Tennessee, U.S.A specializes in designing and building simple, affordable and easy to maintain inboard wake boats.
The WT-1 boats, which are less than 20 feet in length and 8 feet wide were launched in early 2016 and were designed with one thing in mind: “relentless simplicity”.
During the design process of the interior of the WT-1, the Heyday team had two key requirements: ease of assembly in the factory, and ease of use for the end buyer. The team worked with Fastmount's marine distributor in the U.S., Spradling Marine to find a solution.
The WT-1 and (unreleased) WT-2 boats featured the use of the PC-VM1 and PC-F1A from the Standard Range to attach upholstery to the boats, which can seat up to nine people. Fastmount’s PC-VM1 has long been a favoured clip for attaching hard-backed upholstery to boat exteriors due to its variable clipping depth and high shear strength.
The use of Fastmount simplified the installation of the upholstery in the factory, as well as making field-work and warranty simple. Its durability ensures that the end user can comfortably remove the upholstery for cleaning and replace to the same position time after time.
“The Fastmount products have allowed us to re-think how we apply our upholstery and service upholstery. It fits perfectly into our mission of relentlessly simplifying the inboard market. – Ben Dorton, President Heyday Inboards.
