More Information About Our Buoy Bells
To see our other Buoy Bells please click here.

Buoys are usually anchored or moored at the entrance to a harbor or at the edge of a channel, as a guide to navigators. They are instrumental in providing a system of safe navigation of coastal regions throughout the world.

Bell buoys are surmounted with a bell that is sounded by the motion of the waves. Tones are carried for a great distance over water, and most bell buoys have thier own distinctive mix of tones for easy identification, even before a sea-faring navigator actually reaches them.

The Maine Buoy Bells™ are made with a high-grade steel and powder coated with an outside durable finish to endure the weather for years to come. With long term exposure to weather, it will develop a rich rusty color, but will not rust out. You can apply a black outside spray paint on the bell to keep it looking new for years. The bells are designed to hang outdoors year-round, without twisting, tangling, or beaking. The bells can be silenced by pushing the clapper up into the pyramid.



The creator of the Maine Buoy Bells™ was a New England lobsterman for many years. He recorded the actual bell buoy sounds and spent hours cutting steel to match the resonant tones. This windbell collection is based on his interpretation of many bell and gong buoys along the New England coastline. They provide the listener with the beautifully haunting tones that accompany life in a New England harbor region.
