The organizers of the Superyacht Cup Palma 2015, set to run in the beautiful Mallorca yacht charter location from June 17 to 20, are proud to present two new silver sponsors, Palma-based Marine Hydraulic Services (MHS) as well as Italian premium lines manufacturer Gottifredi Maffioli. Both companies are important suppliers to the superyacht and megayacht market and excellent partners to have supporting the leading superyacht regatta in Europe.
“The Superyacht Cup consistently draws some of the most spectacular superyachts in the world to Palma. Prior to the regatta the majority of the yachts undertake refit work and race optimization here on the island, this gives us a great opportunity to provide our hydraulic services to existing and new clients as well as building relationships with other sponsors and industry professionals who attend the regatta each year,” explained Chris Geraghty, Operations Manager at MHS.
Gottifredi Maffioli have been manufacturing rope since 1926. Their new ideas, solid tradition, great experience, advanced technology and strict quality controls have been the corner stones for their long success. “We manufacture a wide range of high quality ropes, braids and yarns made of high tenacity synthetic fibres and with our extensive experience and innovative techniques we are constantly developing new products. The Superyacht Cup in Palma provides us the ideal platform to present our brand and extensive product range to the superyacht industry where quality, reliability and innovation are so important,” commented Massimo DellAcqua.
The outstanding selection of modern and classic superyachts already registered include many regulars who year after year have enjoyed the unique atmosphere; the exhilarating racing amongst a truly breathtaking fleet and the relaxed, informal evening functions held on the dock in the heart of Palma, a cosmopolitan city with so much to offer visitors.
Luxury charter yacht Highland Breeze (Frers/Nautor Swan 34m) will be making her fifth consecutive appearance at SYC with her smartly uniformed Gaastra crew under the guidance of experienced Captain Albert Keularts. Competitive on the race course and always highly visible on the dock, the Highland Breeze team certainly know how to join in the spirit of the event and experience the regatta to the full. As gold sponsors to The Superyacht Cup, Gaastra supply the Race Officials and SYC staff with team clothing.
Superyacht Saudade (Tripp/Wally 45m) is another regular visitor to Palma, a fast powerful sloop she is always a keen contender and ready to take on the new arrivals. This year she will be joined by another Wally Yacht, the 30m luxury yacht Open Season (Judel/Vrolijk/Wally), a newer generation design launched in 2012. The two rivals will be determined to out perform each other around the race track.
