Ovington Boats has purchased the Victor Boats share in the Musto Performance Skiff project giving them complete control over building, sales and marketing of the class.
Ovington Boats has been a 50 per cent partner of Ovington Boats since the inception of the Musto Performance Skiff project, formally with Devoti Sailing and latterly with Victor Boats but according to Dave Hall, Ovington Boats Sales Director, the new project allows the company to expand the class further. Hall commented: “Ovington Boats have been a key partner in the Musto Performance Skiff project from the very outset and to develop the class further, as its international growth increases, required further investment in all areas. Increasing our stake in the project allows us to support the growth in the class.”
Paul Manning, the Operations Director with Victor Boats will continue to provide key regatta support for the class , Manning says “Following the classes continued growth in both the UK and overseas the project has out-grown Victor Boats. To support the next phase the transition to full ownership to Ovington Boats is the obvious next step. I look forward to working with Ovington Boats to provide the continuity in regatta support.”
Ovington Boats are also taking the opportunity, in partnership with Musto Performance Clothing class sponsor, to support the future development of the Musto Performance Skiff Class Association (MPSCA) through the provision of a long-term sponsorship package.
