What is the difference between deck hatches and portlights?

Hatches and portlights are openings in a boat's deck or hull that allow light and air to enter the interior spaces of your vessel. They also provide an emergency exit route in the event of an onboard fire or another disaster and prevent water from entering the cabin in rough weather conditions.

Hatches are typically larger than portlights and are used as either an access point or for ventilation. Portlights, on the other hand, are smaller and are mainly used for light and ventilation.

What kinds of deck hatches and portlights are available?

Several types of marine deck hatches are available on the market, each with unique features and benefits.

The most common boat hatches in Australia are the flush mount hatch, designed to sit flush with the deck surface. These hatches are typically made from stainless steel or aluminium and are available in various sizes.

Another popular deck hatch is the recessed hatch, designed to be installed below deck level. These hatches are often made from fibreglass or plastic and are available in various sizes and shapes. Lastly, there are also marine deck hatches available with built-in portlights. These hatches offer the benefits of both a hatch and a portlight and are typically made from fibreglass or plastic.

The type of hatch or portlight you need will depend on your vessel's location, where it will be installed and the size and weight of the opening. For example, if you're looking for something that is both functional and stylish, our selection of acrylic or stainless steel hatches would be ideal. Alternatively, our aluminium or fibreglass hatches would be better suited if you're after something more durable and weather-resistant.

If you're unsure which hatch or portlight is right for you, please don't hesitate to contact our team of experts. We'll be more than happy to help you make the right decision for your needs.
