Although they are small, bearings play an important role in the way that a boat performs. They reduce the amount of vibration felt both across your vessel and within various components, ensuring that you run smoothly in all conditions, and they protect your shafts from damage. They are applied to important parts of your boat such as its propulsion, rudder and pump, and they keep these components running smoothly in all types of weather and ocean conditions.
Duramax Marine makes custom bearings suitable for all of the main components on your boat. They use a nitrile rubber that is formulated specially to meet the standards of the U.S. Navy.

They use a unique design that is better for the environment and better for your equipment. The bearings feature grooves that wash grit and dirt away from the shaft. They are made of environmentally sound material and are built to dampen even the strongest vibrations.
