Innovation3 Composites have had the most successful year to date, we have been flat out since last October working on various refit projects.
Our team has expanded and we have doubled our workshop space.
Our major projects last winter have been (Wally 148 Saudade) We worked in conjunction with our design partner lddes Yachts to carry out various major modifications including new helm stations, the old cockpit furniture was removed and was replaced by a lighter more sleeker modern version, a new racing bowsprit was built and fitted along with all new ram mount arrangements neatly hidden inside the lockers.
Another larger project was Wally 107 Openseason Boom mod, which we collaborated with Rigging Projects LTD based in UK who flew in to design a new outhaul system which was fabricated and fitted out at our new expanded facility in Can Valero.
Other projects worth mentioning were new emergency Mini Maxi 72 bowsprit and several Mini Maxi 72 bowsprit extensions.
Since the start of April I have now taken over the 100% ownership of i3 composites and my previous business partner Bill Mattiholie has gone on to start a CNC machining business Cutting Edge which will be based here on the island working out of Santa Maria, we will continue to use Cutting Edge for all our CNC Machining requirements.
We currently have some interesting projects to keep us busy during the summer months along with major upgrades to the workshop, and already have our order books starting to fill for October with some major Rig / spreader mods so we will hit the ground running ready for another busy refit season.
I would just like to take this opportunity to thank all the i3 team members who work extremely hard to make sure we are continuously delivering on deadlines and reaching our company goals.
