Sailing reinvented

An elusive combination of luck, passion, and an urge to take on new challenges brought us together to discuss a question that is both simple yet complicated in terms of the solutions required. How can we combine the vision and know-how of two very different brands in terms of history, culture and scale, to offer the best possible sailing experience?

We quickly figured out that it would take more than boats to live up to our intentions. We will have to work on creating a completely new ecosystem: from the sailing interface to digital learning applications, including special events and, of course, races. In addition to our new range of boats, it means successfully creating new content and services, essential to creating a new experience.
