As we’ve grown as a company, our network of partners has expanded to touch most places in the world, and our work with the competitive sailing community has allowed us to partner with some of the most influential end esteemed people in sailing. So when it came to providing a custom SeaDek kit for American Magic CEO Rob Ouellette, the power of the SeaDek family was stronger than ever.
Based in Newport, Rhode Island, MacDesigns (and their SeaDek division, Performance Sail Tools), has been a mainstay in the sailing industry for decades, working with top teams on all types of high profile race boat projects. And with SeaDek an Official Supplier for America’s Cup challenger American Magic, their location in the heart of American sailing has made them a valuable asset time and time again.
So when Rob wanted SeaDek for his AB Inflatable Oceanus 28 VST, MacDesigns digitized, designed, cut, and installed a fully custom SeaDek kit with a precise fit and finish—the kind of work they are known for in Newport.
And it sounds like Rob couldn’t be happier:
“For my family and I, SeaDek was the only choice for decking aboard our family’s AB inflatable. The SeaDek transformed the boat into a family friendly platform where before the installation we were slipping around on old, worn out non-skid paint. From order through production and install we were just over 2 weeks which enabled us to get the most out of the season. This is the first install for me personally, but we have used SeaDek for years in all of the professional sailboat racing programs I am involved with and I’m delighted we made the move to get this fantastic product installed on our family’s boat. The team from MacDesigns were awesome with the planning, ordering and installation- I could not have asked for a smoother process... – Rob Ouellette
Thank you Rob and MacDesigns, we are proud to be partnered with you both!
