Scanmix Corporation Bronze Bells

Ship’s Heart of Bronze
Four-hour watches on the old sailing ships were marked by the ringing of the ship's bell on the hour and half-hour until eight bells signaled the changing of the watch. The Coast Guard still requires that vessels between 40 and 65 feet in length carry a bell that is audible from at least half a nautical mile away. Vestiges of regulation notwithstanding, bells are a beautiful way to evoke seafaring tradition on one's own boat. Our custom bell shop still hand-casts bronze bells the old-fashioned way, and we can add your yacht's name or any lettering at the rim. Ships bells come in five sizes, ranging from 5½ inches in diameter and 2.9 pounds to 14 inches and 26.5 pounds.
