Two of the marine industry’s leading brands will partner next year across the APBA offshore racing season. Powerboat P1 and MYCO Trailers jointly announced in Florida today that a new sponsorship agreement will see MYCO become an official partner of Powerboat P1.
Founded by a powerboat racer for racers and based on Florida’s west coast, MYCO Trailers has been the industry leader in fully welded, customizable boat trailers for nearly fifty years. Its mechanical engineers design each trailer around the boat to deliver products with a superior fit and finish. It supplies trailers internationally, including to military organizations, world leaders, movie stars and top athletes.
“We are partnering with P1 to reinforce our racing connections,” explained MYCO’s head of business development, Jon Smiley. “The world of offshore racing helped us catapult to, and remain at, the top of the custom boat trailer market. We are known for our dedication to long-term customer support and this new association with P1 will give us the opportunity to better connect with race teams to receive additional customer feedback that will be transferred into improved product designs in the future. As our Service Center opens early next year we look forward to providing a convenient factory service center for all MYCO Trailers on the road today.”
“Partnerships are at the heart of our business and this feels like a very natural relationship that will deliver tangible results for both parties,” said P1 chief executive Azam Rangoonwala. “The sponsorship will give MYCO Trailers exposure through our television shows, which are broadcast domestically and internationally, our website and social media activity, event branding and marketing.”
In October, P1 was assigned the international rights to Class 1 offshore racing by the UIM and it will promote a six-venue series in 2021 running from May through to the Key West Championships in November. “We look forward to working closely with P1 and to spending time with racers and spectators alike,” Smiley added.
