Oracle Team USA said today that it selected Beneteau America as the team’s hospitality vessel supplier. Beneteau will provide its Swift Trawler 34, 44 and 50 for the team’s hospitality use leading up to and during the 34th America’s Cup, giving spectators an up-close view of the race.
“It is an honor to support Oracle Team USA in their campaign to bring home another victory in the 34th America’s Cup,” Beneteau America president Laurent Fabre said in a statement. “This is a unique opportunity for a select few organizations, all leaders committed to the highest level of excellence, to unite behind an iconic racing team, and Beneteau is proud to be among them.”
“As a global leader in building performance sailing and motoryachts, Beneteau is a natural fit to provide Oracle Team USA’s sponsors and guests with the best on-the-water experience,” Oracle Team USA CEO Russell Coutts said in a statement. “This year's racing will be exciting, and with the help of Beneteau, guests will have a front row seat to all of the action."
