Two of the marine industry’s leading brands are continuing their established partnership this year across the APBA offshore racing season. Powerboat P1 and MYCO Trailers have jointly announced that a new agreement will see MYCO become an official partner of the international marine motorsport promoter.
Headquartered in Bradenton on Florida’s Gulf Coast and known throughout the high-performance powerboat world, MYCO Trailers is the world leader in custom, all-welded boat trailers. Its mechanical engineers design each trailer around the boat to produce the most precise fitting and best towing trailers in the industry. With the tag line “Pull It in Style,” MYCO was the first company in Florida to weld an aluminum marine trailer, the first to design a self-centering trailer bunk system and the first to use stainless steel brake lines. Preparing to celebrate its 50th anniversary next year, MYCO has earned the reputation of being the premium brand of choice for performance, center console, cat and step hull designed boats, as well as the U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Customs and U.S. Navy.
“I am very excited to be working with P1 Offshore,” said Denis McComb, MYCO’s Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “Our company started in performance boats and we are committed to continue our support of the powerboat racing market. Our engineering quality is the best in the industry, and we strive to continuously improve to exceed our customers’ expectations. I am excited to see what our race customers will ask us to come up with next."
Powerboat P1 CEO Azam Rangoonwala commented: “Strategic partnerships are an integral part of our business and this is a very natural relationship that delivers tangible results for both parties. The partnership gives MYCO exposure through our national and international television broadcasts, which domestically include Bally Sports regional sports networks and CBS Sports Network, our websites and social media activity, event branding, public relations and marketing.”
The P1 race season kicked off in Cocoa Beach on Florida’s Atlantic Coast last month and now moves to the Gulf Coast where the Sarasota Powerboat Grand Prix will celebrate its 39th anniversary this weekend (June 30 to July 2). In August the series will head north to Indiana for the Michigan City Great Lakes Grand Prix, and then a new event in the Wisconsin city of Sheboygan on the western shore of Lake Michigan will host the Mercury Racing Midwest Challenge. Featuring the top categories of U.S. powerboat racing including Class 1, the three-day festival is expected to attract up to forty teams to race along the Sheboygan waterfront. In early September the P1 Offshore fleet will be back on the Gulf Coast in St. Petersburg.
