The ‘ROKK Wireless – Active’ will allow SŌLACE owners to wirelessly charge and mount their phones right at the helm during all conditions. It features a high friction grip, single-handed phone placement, and is IPX6 waterproof.

The SŌLACE 345 includes two ‘ROKK Wireless – Active’ chargers in the helm. One is to the right of the wheel and the other is to the left. The placement of these chargers allows the captain to keep their phones within reach and fully charged at all times.

SŌLACE sees the value of such design that is usable in all marine conditions. This unit will be seen on all boats leaving the SŌLACE facility as a standard feature, adding to an already long list of standards. Two ROKK traditional waterproof USB ports will be available for guests sitting in the forward lounger. Founder of SŌLACE Boats, Stephen Dougherty, said “Finally we have the opportunity to stay connected and ready on the water. So many customers are bringing a variety of devices to sea, and with their inherent safety benefits, not just including this technology but partnering with Scanstrut was essential.”

SŌLACE looks forward to growing their technical partnership with Scanstrut, creating a better boating environment for all their owners.

“As two forward looking innovative companies, we’re delighted to partner with SŌLACE Boats. Our shared aim is to create a better boating environment and ROKK Wireless – Active is the perfect product for their new 345 model, securely mounting and instantly charging your phone, exactly where you need it.” Tom Reed, Scanstrut CEO.
