We are often approached to come up with custom solutions for clients, both for new projects and those looking to retrofit existing yachts. A recent project was for the 30m superyacht Chrisco, where we were tasked with creating a custom new head swivel and modifications to the integrator by KZ Racefurlers to suit the yacht's new Code 0 sail.
With the yacht having to work with the hydraulic furling system built in the bow of the boat, KZ Marine Group then worked to create a new 12T SWL head swivel and customised top down integrator for the yacht that would complement the hydraulic furler. The end result was a sail and furling system that worked together perfectly from first use, leaving the owner and skipper very happy with the overall solution.
As a proud Kiwi company, we love to work with and support many of New Zealand's talented sailors. Fresh from his amazing victory at the 2015 Moth Worlds, Peter Burling came by the KZ Marine Group factory and even brought his trophy along. KZ regularly works with Peter on custom solutions for his boats and we were delighted to be able to help refine the foiling and rudder sytems for his successful Moth campaign.
Peter is very hands on and on his visits to the factory you will often find him on the tools with the team so he can really understand the parts and their production process. Peter's a man of few words, but we did get him to confirm that he was very happy with his collaborations with KZ, and that our parts for the Moth campaign were 'sweet as.' Thanks for your ongoing support of KZ Marine Peter!
