ORACLE TEAM USA and Yanmar are renewing their partnership for the upcoming edition of the America's Cup, the competition for the oldest trophy in international sport.
In its capacity as an Official Technical Partner, Yanmar will power the team's campaign for the 35th America's Cup, hosted in Bermuda, where the crew will defend their title in 2017.
This represents a renewed partnership between two leaders in their respective fields, continuing a successful collaboration during the 34th edition of the America's Cup held in 2013, when the team celebrated its victory over Emirates Team New Zealand, after a dramatic three weeks of racing that resulted in one of the all-time greatest comebacks in sport.
In its capacity as a partner of the team, Yanmar's distinctive logo will be displayed on the race and chase boats, as well as uniforms and a variety of promotional material.
"It is a great honor for all of us at Yanmar to partner with ORACLE TEAM USA for the second time," said Ken Araki, Officer of Yanmar Holdings Co., Ltd. "Being selected by the world's leading racing team is proof of the durability and reliability of our engines. From the preliminary stages of the Louis Vuitton America's Cup World Series to the 2017 America's Cup finals, Yanmar will stand by the team, looking forward to working together towards a triumph in the America's Cup."
