KZ Racefurlers is proud to have been confirmed as the official furler supplier to the Volvo Ocean Race 2017-2018. "This news builds on our longstanding relationship with the Race and we look forward to working with Race organisers and the teams again to ensure that they have the best furling gear available to take them around the world with confidence," says Keryn McMaster, KZ Racefurlers Brand Manager.
"KZ Marine have been part of the Volvo Ocean Race for many years now and with the transition to the Volvo Ocean 65 they were an obvious choice to be furler supplier," says Nick Bice, Head of The Boatyard for the Volvo OCean Race 2017-2018. "The Volvo Ocean 65 had a few pre requisites that were required to become a supplier, no more so than reliability and that is what we got. With over 350.000 miles accumulated between the fleet of 7 boats, the performance of the furling systems were second to none in both ease of use and reliability. The Boatyard and The Volvo Ocean Race look forward to continuing our relationship with KZ Marine as fuller supplier for the next edition of the race which will also be a very popular choice amongst the teams”
