Houdini Marine Deck Hatches

Houdini Deck HatchThe world renowned and instantly recognisable Houdini Deck Hatch has been in production for over fifty years.

Houdini boat hatches are robustly constructed using quality materials and are fitted with toughened glass and marine-grade aluminium. When compared to acrylic glazing, used in most deck hatches, toughened glass will not scratch as easily or suffer UV degradation. 

With an above deck height of a mere 25mm, these hatches are extremely streamlined and cause minimum obstruction on the deck. Houdini standard hatches are silver anodised, however frames can also be black or gold anodised, or powder coated to a specific colour. 

Bespoke Hatches – in addition to Houdini's standard range shown above, Houdini can build a hatch to match existing apertures. Bespoke hatches can be made with radius or mitred corners and be trapezoidal, rectangular or square in shape.

Houdini hatches are CE marked for compliance with the ISO12216 standard.
