Holmatro are involved in hydraulic rescue equipment and are now continuing to expand into the Marine industry with a range of hydraulic hardware under the name Holmatro Marine.
'We are so excited in this new project and really looking forward to having our first test sail. We saw this class and series as a great opportunity to bring our marine products to the market at the highest level,' said Jaap MEIJER, chairman of Holmatro.
The fleet of Volvo Extreme 40's will be fitted with Holmatro hydraulic downhaul and mainsheet systems. The boats will also come with custom built Meissner winches that have been designed specifically for these high speed race cats. Holmatro are official class supplier for hydraulics and winches (the winches are promoted under the brand name Meissner).
The Holmatro sailing team will include multihull expert Mitch BOOTH as helmsman and multiple world champion Herbert DERCKSEN as tactician. The remaining crew members will be finalized shortly.
'It is great to work together Holmatro who share the same passion for the sport of sailing and enthusiasm for this extreme project,' commented BOOTH.
