-- Joe Maran, owner of Maran Marine is well known for his accomplishments in the marine industry, which include designing and building the Jupiter 31. Their products are recognized for their unique design and attention to detail.
The Palm City company is now manufacturing top quality fiberglass battery boxes designed for the Northstar 210 and Northstar 130 batteries and the Odyssey PC1800. Due to the efficiency of the manufacturing process, the top-quality battery boxes are for sale at wholesale prices to the public.
Each battery box is designed to hold two batteries side by side and is constructed of hand laid fiberglass using the highest grade Isophthalic Polyester Resin. The boxes meet all Coast Guard specifications. Battery leads are accessible from four different directions insuring easy installation of wiring. The bottom of the battery is supported by three recessed mounting legs and provides secure recessed anchoring of the battery box to subfloors. Superior ventilation ensures that the battery remains cool while charging and discharging.
The marine division of Northstar batteries originally approached Maran Marine with a request to design and build a fiberglass battery box exclusively for their model 210 and 130 Northstar batteries. Today, the battery boxes are used by companies such as Trinity Yachts, one of the world's elite builders of custom super yachts.
Frank Alan of Trinity Yachts commented, “We have used the Maran Marine fiberglass battery boxes exclusively in our yachts for the past several years. They meet the demanding specifications and requirements for quality and dependability that our yachts’ reputations are built on."
There are two models of battery boxes, one for the Northstar battery 210 and the Odyssey PC 1800 battery. The price is $162. The second model will hold two Northstar 130 batteries and sells from $152.
