About Halyard

Since we were founded in 1979, Halyard has focussed on providing technical equipment and services that make boating more enjoyable.
Initially an Aquadrive distributor, our offerings quickly grew to encompass other noise reducing technologies including sound insulation and exhaust systems for all kinds of vessel.

Over time we have addressed other factors that detract from the boating experience including exhaust emissions and overboard discharges.
For over 25 years we have been designing exhaust systems and components for vessels with high speed diesel engines; be they generators or main propulsion engines, on small sailing day boats up to the largest superyachts on the oceans. Or, the hardest working commercial vessels in the worst conditions on the water.

Our mission is to build on this heritage by:
Providing leading edge technical products in the marine industry that improve the environment for boat users, crew, guests and other water users.

Developing new markets where our expertise from the marine sector can bring real benefits
