Pinmar, the leading paint applicator for superyachts worldwide, and New York Yacht Club American Magic, the U.S. Challenger for the 37th America’s Cup, are delighted to announce an affiliated brand partnership.

Pinmar is proud to be the chosen paint applicator for the American Magic challenger yacht. Pinmar’s elite US application team have been commissioned to deliver the ultra-high performance paint finish to American Magic’s AC75 at their Bristol, Rhode Island facilities before it joins the team base, located in Barcelona, for the final push into the 37th America’s Cup campaign in 2024.

The American Magic team will also benefit from Pinmar’s flagship chandlery in MB92 Barcelona, providing onsite access to the leading marine brands and excellent technical support during their stay.

Rupert Savage, CCO of Pinmar’s parent company GYG Ltd commented, “We are honoured to share this challenge with New York Yacht Club American Magic and contribute to the victory of the team in the 37th America’s Cup. Our organisations share similar values of performance, quality, and excellence, and our experienced applicators in the US understand exactly what is required to deliver a winning paint finish. I look forward to welcoming the American Magic team when they arrive in Barcelona and experiencing the magic of the America’s Cup up close.”

“Pinmar’s unwavering commitment to high-performance finishes perfectly aligns with our team’s relentless pursuit of excellence,” said Terry Hutchinson, Skipper, and President of Sailing Operations for NYYC American Magic. Selecting Pinmar as our paint applicator was a strategic move to enhance our yacht’s performance. Together, we’re driven by a shared passion for pushing boundaries and an unyielding determination to claim the America’s Cup.”

The 37th America’s Cup will take place in Barcelona, Spain, during September and October 2024.
