SeaDek to work with America’s Cup defender

SeaDek was named an official supplier to America’s Cup defender Emirates Team New Zealand. The Florida-based manufacturer said it will fabricate non-skid materials for the syndicate’s AC75 raceboats and support vessels.

"Collaborating with designers who continually reinvent the future of sailing pushes us to perform at a higher level as a supplier," said Jason Gardner, vice president of marketing and advertising at SeaDek. "With a partnership such as this, everybody wins because we can bring the advancements we make working with the team to our customers and the marine industry as a whole."

SeaDek worked closely with teams in the last two America's Cups. The company manufactures PE/EVA non-skid products for OEM boatbuilders, aftermarket customers and dealers. SeaDek also produces different lines of retail items.
