How Electric Actuators Improve Marine Vessel Comfort: Interior Applications

News and Articles

The recreational boat industry remains strong and growing. In the most recent National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) Forecast on U.S. Boat Building Production, boat building growth is expected to stay at a healthy pace through 2023.


Advances in marine technology, including the growing use of linear electric actuators, are driving the boating industry’s innovations to improve recreational maritime comfort.


As we’ve told you, electric linear actuators are useful in boats, yachts, and other marine vessels or maritime pleasure craft for practical exterior or cosmetically appealing functional interior applications. TiMOTION furnishes manufacturers with fully customizable and durable turnkey solutions able to withstand marine environments.


TiMOTION’s electric linear actuators and lifting columns redefine marine vessel comfort to an innovative level of recreational luxury. To optimize limited space onboard ships, yachts, sailboats, and other marine crafts, creative motion solutions with fully customizable options are required.



Coasting in Comfort with Electric Linear Actuator Applications


Our actuators and columns are smooth and easy-to-operate, integrate with ship designs for optimal solutions, and provide automated comfort. This interior ship list includes, but is not limited to, the following applications:

  • TV & Screen Lifts: Lifting columns provide space optimization by creatively concealing TVs or screens when not in use.
  • Seating Systems: Actuators can automatically adjust seating systems such as chairs, couches, and recliners for optimal comfort levels. Wireless hand control options further elevate furniture automation.
  • Desks & Tables: Height adjustable desks and tables increase space optimization as they can be adjusted for all types of sizes or needs. They can come with an optional AC plug to directly and conveniently connect electronic devices.
