Armare Ropes has once again been chosen as Official Supplier by Emirates Team New Zealand for the upcoming 37th America’s Cup campaign. The partnership with the New Zealand Team reaches its third consecutive edition, after the previous two successful campaigns in 2017 and 2021.
We all still have in mind memories and emotions that accompanied the recent finals of the 36th America’s Cup, held in Auckland, New Zealand, and ended with the 7-3 victory of Emirates Team New Zealand against the Italians of Luna Rossa. Also on that occasion the technical lines on board the New Zealand boats were developed and produced by Armare Ropes, in the factory located in San Giorgio di Nogaro (Udine) in North – East of Italy.
Once the event is over and the spotlight has gone out, it is already time for insiders to think about the next edition, to be held in 2024. The renewal of the partnership between Armare Ropes and Emirates Team New Zealand, who as “defender” will once again have the challenge of defending the trophy, comes from the desire to start from the enormous amount of work already developed. Five teams have already announced their participation in the next edition in 2024. First of all the Italian team of Luna Rossa, finalist in the last edition and winner of the Prada Cup. The 37th America’s Cup will also record the return of the Swiss team of Alinghi, with the aim of reviving the legendary victories of 2003 and 2007. In addition to Italian and Swiss, the participation of the British Ineos team, as Challenger of Record, and American Magic, representing the New York Yacht Club, are already certain.
Once again the challenge for us will be to develop highly performing and reliable products, to be used on the flying monohulls that will be the one more time protagonists of the 37th edition. Emirates Team New Zealand has once again chosen Armare Ropes, a company in continuous growth and with a high inclination for research and development of new highly technical products. The technical ropes produced by Armare Ropes have been onboard New Zealand’s boats since 2016, and also thanks to them Emirates Team New Zealand won the 35th and 36th America’s Cup.
The renewal of the collaboration with Emirates Team New Zealand comes just in time to celebrate the anniversary, which occurs in these days, of the 30 years of the foundation of Armare, which while continuing a family tradition with 200-year of history, has been able to renew itself and find a relevant and constantly growing position on the international market with the Armare Ropes brand.
