Welcome Viadana USA as a New Advertiser!  Bottom

  • Starting today, you'll notice regular advertising from Viadana USA.

    Viadana USA is the exclusive importer for the Italian sailboat hardware company Viadana Yacht Equipment. Viadana USA is based in Wisconsin and sells direct from their website and through a dealer network.

    Their product line has a lot of items that beachcat sailors need all the time like blocks, pulleys, sheaves, cleats and main-sheet systems, please check them out.

    Have you heard of Viadana hardware before now? I'll admit I had not, but the owner, Jeff Plutchak, told me he became interested in advertising on TheBeachcats.com thanks to one of the members here recommending it. So thank you very much to whoever that was.

    If you know other companies who would be a good fit to advertise on TheBeachcats.com, please send them my way. There is an ad sheet explaining the different options at
    https://www.thebeachcats.com/adrates.htm

    Welcome Viadana USA!

  • Never heard of them before - welcome
    The rates are very low compared ...
  • I heard of them when I was searching for a 6:1 mainsheet system, I saw some set ups on ebay, looked pretty nice, but I wanted Harken.

  • This has my attention as i'm in the market to replace a Harken 6:1 main with an 8:1. After just paying $350 in December for the Harken, the Viadana would be about $270 for the 8:1. Even less with the 10% discount. Has anyone had long-term experience with them?
  • the questions i would ask are:
    what is the customer support?
    and warranty terms?
    if i have to send items back - where do i send to? who pays shipping, etc
  • I have some of their small blocks. I bought them at their booth at the Annapolis boat show. It's all Harken knock off.
    It seems to be ok so far.
