Looking for these storage boxes

want to install a new sail arch on our cat.

In order to optimize the usable space between dinghy and solar panels, I would like to install the storage boxes shown from a Manta 40.

Does anyone know who the manufacturer is or where the sources of supply are ?

One of those looks like a barbecue or stove. If there's a Manta 40 web site, maybe you can find what you need to know there.

Manta 40 was made by Endeavour Catamaran Corp.
The official site seems to be offline (here).

No change to get info from them.


I mean the two boxes between fridge (left) and bbq (right).

Re: Looking for these storage boxes

Have you tried contacting an arch manufacturer? I’ll bet they are aware of all the industry sources even if they don’t offer them as their design options.

Don't know who made those, but ‘Pelican’ makes excellent rugged, durable, and water and dust-tite storage cases.

That looks like a Pelican case, very high quality, waterproof cases that last forever and come in various sizes.

They also have Pelican coolers, as well as Yeti coolers, if you want something sizable.

Using Duck Duck Go, I searched for "Marine Storage Boxes Fiberglass" and found a whole bunch of options like this:

Click on the Image tab to provide a visual of what you're looking for more specifically.



Good luck!

Re: Looking for these storage boxes

thanks to all


@SV_Grace:
the housings I'am looking for cannot actually be from Pelikan, as their locks are all mounted on the side (as far as I could see).

@Sailor647
the lid goes over the rest of the housing. This does not work here, as the housing must have a frame for attachment to the arch.
The attached pic show an example from a very simple, very small (and probably of a much lower quality) case with this frame but without a lock.

I checked also some cases for trucks. But when they will installed vertical instead of horizontal (which is standard) they are not waterproof (because of the locks).
