Success from experience
People who sail in competitions are familiar with constant optimisation and experience the emotional highs that come from success. During a race you will be constantly fine tuning your strategy, always aiming to keep one step ahead of your competitors. STEINER marine binoculars have, for many years, been the first choice of professional and ambitious amateur sailors. Practically indestructible, functional and manufactured to the highest of quality, these are convincing selling points for more than just professionals. STEINER marine binoculars are used in races ranging from the Volvo Ocean Race to the America's Cup and in the regattas of acclaimed sailing yacht manufacturers.

Standard Accessories

Case, comfortable carrying strap, objective covers and rain guard cap come with the binoculars.

Our outstanding product features:

STEINER High-Definition-Optics
Optimally suited for regular, professional use. A highly specialised coating provides first-class light transmission. The images are pin sharp and of the highest contrast — right to the edge. Diffused light is reduced to a minimum. Contours are always sharp and distinctly visible, even in poor light or at the onset of dusk.
24-hour binocular
High transmittance thanks to the 50-mm objective lens and large exit pupil. With 7 power magnification; even in heavy swells, wiggle-free view round the clock.
STEINER Nano-Protection®
The proven STEINER Nano-Protection® permits unsurpassed clear viewing. It gives the lenses a dirt and water repellent surface and thus protects them from aggressive environmental influences. Rain, snow and moisture disappear from your field of vision. Cleaning is made considerably easier and stubborn dirt is a thing of the past. The wafer-thin, hydrophobic surface coating on ocular and objective lenses is extremely robust and will give you a high-contrast and brilliant image for many years.
STEINER Nitrogen-Pressure-System
Fogging up or the formation of condensation inside the binoculars is totally prevented by this high-tech solution from STEINER. Even temperature variations between -40 °C and +80 °C do not have any adverse effects on the functionality of STEINER binoculars filled with nitrogen. The 2-way-valve technology makes maintenance possible at any time even after many years of use.
Water pressure proof
All Commander models from STEINER resist water pressure down to a depth of 10 m! Special sealing technologies make it possible. No dust, no dirt and no humidity can penetrate into the binoculars. This technology protects your binoculars from external impacts.
STEINER ErgoFlex eyecups
This innovative system offers the user superb viewing comfort and reliable protection against incidental light from the side as well as wind/ draughts. The ErgoFlex eyecups are made of non-irritating and non-ageing silicone, which provides a naturally comfortable feeling on the eyes and can also be adjusted three ways by simply folding it over:
  • Ergonomic — for ideal conformity to the shape of the face.
  • Cylindrical — as the classic setting variant.
  • Folded over — for use with eyeglasses.
STEINER Memory-Ocular
Via the handy ratchet mechanism of the memory ocular you can store your personal dioptre setting. By turning the ocular, you will immediately find your personal setting again.
STEINER ClicLoc Strap Attachment
With the carefully thought-out STEINER strap attachment, the binoculars always remain firmly in the strap! The carrying strap, can, however, be released and refastened in one easy move. The comfortable strap and floating strap can be switched quickly and easily.
30 year warranty
We offer a 30 year warranty. If you need a repair, our team of technical experts will check out your binoculars and repair them within the terms of the warranty agreement.

The STEINER Marine Standard:

Temperature resistant
Even temperature variations between -40 °C to +80 °C will not adversely affect the functionality of a STEINER binocular (for details see table).
NBR-Longlife Rubber Armouring
The especially durable NBR-Longlife Rubber Armouring is resistant to the effects of oil, acid or weathering. The surface always stays easy to grasp and slip-proof even in extremely wet conditions, heat or cold.
STEINER Sports-Auto-Focus
Once adjusted, the unique STEINER Sports-Auto-Focus always provides razor-sharp images from 20 m to infinity. Without refocusing.
Extreme Ruggedness
The Makrolon® material used in the construction makes the housing even more shockproof and thus much more rugged. The prisms have “floating” mountings. That means that they are fixed with a durable, flexible silicone material to protect the valuable optical components inside.
Ergonomic design
Lies perfectly in your hand and the good gripping characteristics of the contact ribs offer sure handling.
High-quality accessories
Every binocular is equipped with carrying strap, rain protection cap for eyepieces and objective covers and is delivered with a high-quality case or gear bag.
