A+T Instruments, a global leader in marine instrument solutions, is gearing up for another promising race season after an exceptionally successful year in 2023.

With an impressive track record of delivering high performance and well-engineered sailing instrument upgrades for existing yachts as well as complete systems for new-builds and major refits, A+T Instruments continues to be the first choice for discerning sailors and racing enthusiasts worldwide.

In 2023, several notable yachts equipped with A+T Instruments demonstrated remarkable performance across various prestigious races. Leopard 3, the canting keel Farr 100ft maxi, captured attention with stellar victories, including setting race records and clinching first place overall in the Aegean 600 and the Middle Sea Race. These wins, achieved straight out of a major refit featuring A+T's cutting-edge instruments, demonstrate the company's commitment to excellence and innovation in marine technology.

Velsheda and TP52 Red Bandit (formerly Freccia Rossa) also experienced significant success after upgrading to A+T instruments. Velsheda's triumph at the Palma Superyacht Cup and Red Bandit's victories in prestigious races such as the Giraglia and Voiles de St Tropez highlight the performance and reliability of A+T's instruments, as acknowledged by their respective navigators and captains.

Furthermore, the meticulous restoration of the 1938 Sparkman and Stephens' yawl Baruna showcased A+T's ability to provide comprehensive instrumentation solutions tailored to classic vessels seeking high-level performance data. The successful completion of this project, under the expert guidance of captain Tony Morse, underscores A+T's versatility and commitment to supporting projects of historical significance.

In addition to these achievements, Stella Maris, ClubSwan 50, secured the 2023 European Championship title, further solidifying A+T's reputation for delivering performance-enhancing solutions to competitive racing teams. The collaboration between A+T and FaRo enabled the seamless integration of A+T displays with the FaRo processor, setting a new standard for efficiency and functionality in marine instrumentation.

Highland Fling XVIII, the newly launched Gunboat 80, equipped with A+T's Ethernet-based instrument and pilot systems, impressed in its debut at the Maxi Rolex Cup, showcasing the company's commitment to providing state-of-the-art solutions for modern racing vessels.

Hugh Agnew, A+T Instruments' Director and well-respected navigation and instrument specialist on the racing circuit, is looking forward to another successful season, commenting from St Barths:

"The 2024 season is looking like a smorgasbord of A+T sailing with Adela in St Barths, Velsheda at Palma Superyacht Cup, Adix in the Richard Mille Cup, Leopard 3 in the Maxis, The Americas Cup and many more regattas featuring A+T's valued clients, we have a great season ahead"

With over 500 superyachts and race boats already benefiting from A+T's engineering excellence and unparalleled customer support, the company looks forward to an exciting 2024 season.
