Suzuki GB is proud to announce that it has partnered with INEOS Britannia to become the official supplier of outboard motors for its fleet of chase boats, which will support INEOS Britannia, the Challenger of Record for the 37th America’s Cup.
The partnership was officially announced at the Southampton International Boat Show today and will see Suzuki powering the team’s chase boats as it prepares for the 37th America’s Cup which is to be held in Barcelona in 2024.
The America’s Cup is one of the world’s toughest sporting challenges and the pinnacle of yachting. As the British Challenger, INEOS Britannia, led by Sir Ben Ainslie and backed by INEOS, strives for engineering excellence and is pushing the boundaries of modern sailing technology and engineering.
The same drive and approach to innovation has been used to identify the very best equipment and components to support the team, which is why Suzuki has been selected as official supplier of outboards.
The outboard of choice will be the dual-propeller DF325A model, with Suzuki providing the team with 12 units in total. The cutting-edge technologies in the DF325A are second to none, and their famed reliability make them ideal for powering the team’s chase boats.
