Floating, polarized bifocals

Barz USA has introduced what it says is the world’s first floating, polarized sunglasses with photochromic lenses and bifocal readers. The mold-injected polycarbonate lenses won’t distort and will adjust to changing UV exposure by darkening and lightening. They can be ordered as bifocals with various levels of correction. The frames are available in three styles and feature small air pockets, so they float if they go overboard. $160-$300.

Cup cooler

With Dometic Marine’s thermoelectric cup coolers, you’ll never again have to say, “Warm beer is better than no beer at all.” Dometic has brought the koozie into the 21st century with a refrigerated cup holder that replaces standard cup holders on board. Powered by the boat’s battery, the cup holder switches on and off, is large enough for a 20-ounce water or soda bottle or a standard beer or soda can, and replaces most 4-inch holders. $199.
