Help sourcing IP69 shore power inlet

G'day
Okay multiple days searching google has provided minimal results for me :-(

I am trying to source a 220-250v 16A (but will look at higher) IP69k rated surface mount power inlet. I am open to pin configuration as this will only be on the boat side and the other will be matched to our Marina.
I am planning to mount this up on the bow on a vertical area at the back of the windless well on our boat. This area can be submerged often in heavy weather. It may not seem like a good idea to put it there but if I can get the right component then it should not be a problem and this is by far the best spot for us to plug in.
Please I'm not looking to debate my decision I am only asking for help in locating a suitable inlet.

I have only found Gewiss that indicates they make one but cannot get a response. It also may only be 69k rated when mated to a cord. When mated to a cord/lead 68 rating would be more than adequate and 67 would suffice however while under way I think IP69K rating would be required to handle sudden pressure changes from when green water is breaking over the bow.

Any help is appreciated.
BTW I am already considering a deck plate with the inlet recessed behind but in this location it will involve considerable work and glassing so is only a last resort answer for me.

Thanks again

Re: Help sourcing IP69 shore power inlet

I have not heard of one and doubt you will have any luck. One solution is with the shorepower cable entering the interior through a waterproof gland and hard wiring it in. The cable would have to be stored in the bow locker with this arrangement though.

In North America (ABYC) a bow entry would be more that 10' to the main breaker on most boats and therefore would require a second main breaker within that 10'.

Thanks Dave, that's one of the companies I'm waiting to hear back from.
I've been looking at their 7000 series but have no personal experience with them.
Have you used any of their products?
Cheers
