Airbus and American Magic: Flying Towards the America’s Cup

Airbus innovation is a special ingredient in American Magic’s ongoing quest for the oldest trophy in international sports – the America’s Cup – with the company providing outside-the-box thinking and technical support onsite.

American Magic – which represents the New York Yacht Club – sought out Airbus to optimize the performance of its racing yacht’s design process, particularly looking to leverage the aerospace industry global pioneer’s expertise in engineering and simulation.

About New York Yacht Club American Magic

Formed in October 2017 by Bella Mente Racing, Quantum Racing and the New York Yacht Club, American Magic represents a joint vision to win the America’s Cup, the highest prize in sailing and the oldest trophy in international sports. American Magic brings together two highly successful racing programs with one of the foremost yacht clubs in the world, united by a campaign to win back the Cup, reconnect the American sailing base with the premier event in the sport and elevate the quality of competitive sailing in the United States. The name, American Magic, is a nod to the New York Yacht Club’s storied America’s Cup history; a combination of the boat the trophy is named for, and the first boat to defend it.

American Magic will develop and support a team that will participate in the America’s Cup competition, the Prada Cup and the America’s Cup World Series events that lead up to both. American Magic’s Official Innovation Partner is Airbus, along with Team Partner TSI Incorporated. Other partnerships include Official Apparel Sponsor Helly Hansen and Official Control Systems Sponsor Parker Hannifin. American Magic is a recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. www.americanmagic.com

About the New York Yacht Club

The New York Yacht Club was founded in 1844 when nine New York yachtsmen met aboard John Cox Stevens’ yacht and a year later its original clubhouse was built in Hoboken, N.J. The Club’s Annual Regatta was first run in 1845. The Club was the keeper of the America’s Cup from 1851 to 1983, and it organized the first transatlantic race in 1866. The Club maintains two exquisite clubhouses, on 44th Street in the heart of New York City, known for its Model Room and extensive nautical library, and Harbour Court in Newport, R.I., which annually hosts some of North America’s most prestigious sailing events, including the Annual Regatta, Race Week at Newport presented by Rolex, the Rolex New York Yacht Club Invitational Cup and the Queen’s Cup. www.nyyc.org

METS 2019 Recap

We are happy to be back at the factory, but the great friends and memories we made at METS 2019 in Amsterdam are still fresh in our minds. This year was our fifth year exhibiting at the world’s largest marine equipment tradeshow, and with a bigger stand and our biggest network of Certified Fabricators and Installers yet, it’s safe to say that this was the most successful METS to date!

SeaDek METS 2019

Our METS began with a meeting at the RAI on Monday, where we had a great meeting with our Fabricators from the UK, Spain, France, Germany, Italy, the UAE, and Australia. From there it was dinner at Cafe Restaurant Amsterdam, which still houses one of the original pumps that kept the sub-sea level city dry for decades prior.

Traffic at the show was bustling from the time the doors opened on Tuesday until its conclusion on Thursday evening. We are fortunate to have a wonderful group of partners who were able to make immediate connections with marine professionals from their respective countries. Thanks to all of our Fabricators that joined us, we are thankful to have you and had an excellent time catching up in Amsterdam!

SeaDek Hosts Local High School Business Academy

We were proud to host, for the 6th year in a row, local high school students from Melbourne, FL on a field trip showing them how our business operates.

Students sitting in a Nautique G23

Students from Melbourne High School Business Academy were shown what happens when customers send in completed template kits. We have a scans department that takes mylar sheets covered in sharpie traced pieces that match the part of the boat the customer wants covered in custom SeaDek. They work hard to capture and generate precise imagery and an in-house CAD department then takes those files to create, with our CAT team’s input from the customers, one of a kind drawings.

Students touring SeaDek Headquarters

These drawings include what color combination the customer chooses, the thickness as well as the texture of the product with any custom logos. From there our scheduling department gets the ball rolling to put the job out on the production floor. From there we have employees that specialize in pulling sheets in our warehouse approved by our quality team after being developed by our Research and Development Team.

Students touring the production floor at SeaDek headquarters

Our transportation specialists will often drive from our warehouse to our headquarters after our production team uses various machines to laminate, texturize and apply PSA to our product. From there the product makes its way to our CNC machines for routing and edging. After that the product may make its way to our state of the art laser department for finishing touches before it gets a thorough once over from our Quality Control department.

Students touring the production floor at SeaDek headquarters

Once the product is ready to be shipped we have a packaging team that works along side those that specialize logistics and shipping. Aside from those numerous roles we have an HR department, an accounting team, individuals that specialize in continuous improvement, quality, sales, safety, maintenance, professional installation, operations, and marketing, along with our senior leadership team.

Students touring the production floor at SeaDek headquarters

We proudly employ over 150 employees and are constantly evolving and growing. Vice President of Marketing Jason Gardner said, “I get a lot of enjoyment sharing my passion for manufacturing in the marine industry and inspiring the next generation of creative minds.”

Custom SeaDek on a SeaRay 230

SeaDek customer Anthony Hunt of Purvis, Mississippi, recently decided to customize the flooring on his 2008 Sea Ray 230 Fission and he loves it!

Our CAD Designer Morgen Brohman helped design this project that turned out gorgeous. Hunt chose to go with Storm Gray over Cool Gray, brushed with 2″ teak pattern. Anthony designed his own custom logo that was placed throughout the cockpit to give his boat a truly one-of-a-kind feel.
