The partnerships formed will allow for an effective cross-marketing platform that celebrates the pinnacle of performance and innovation.
'We are thrilled and honored that Musto, Harken and New England Ropes are behind our new C&C 30 One Design', says Sarah Fawle, VP of Marketing and Communications for C&C Yachts. 'These brands are leaders in the industry and when matched with the C&C Yachts Team and Mark Mills' design pedigree the new C&C 30 One Design will certainly soar ahead of the game.'
Musto, Harken and New England Ropes are all key equipment suppliers on the C&C 30 racing yacht and will partner with C&C Yachts in the development of a multi-media campaign over the next year that includes video, print, digital and event. Harken's Jim Andersen comments, 'With 'Purpose-built, high performance and fun' as the goal of the design and build team of Mark Mills and C&C Yachts, the C&C 30 is sure to be a success.'
