Boat, maritime and watercraft wires and cables are duo or tri-conductor cables that are organized in a next–to–each–other lined-up orientation and typically intended to serve the function of boat interior circuit wiring and cabling. Because of the exposure boat wires have to water and moist settings, the primary characteristics are its proof against water, as well as to elevated climatic and application temperatures of 105 degrees Celsius, very similar to automotive applications. Similarly, many automotive primary cables and wires can be used in boat, maritime and watercraft products.
The boat, maritime and watercraft wires and cables are typically manufactured using tin-dipped copper conductor resulting in a tolerance to wear and oxidation. As opposed to tin-dipped copper, non-tin-dipped copper corrodes faster, reducing its capacity to transport electricity. Not only does the tin process enhance the tolerance to settings where water is present, but also insulation of boat cables and wires are typically much more tough jackets of Polyvinyl Chloride material making them malleable and adaptable to maritime settings, satisfying Navy as well as American Boat Yacht Council (ABYC) requirements.
