For instance, we use the best Gelcoat in the world. This Gelcoat makes us able to give the hull a much more hydrodynamic surface. We also use fibreglass that is up to 50% more expensive than other fibreglasses. This gives superior torsion resistance and stiffness. To make sure that every boat which leaves us is 100% Winner quality, we have invested in the most high-tech and environment friendly optimist plant in the world. Located in Denmark, our highly qualified craftsmen are recruited locally and are the best in their field. In order to prove how much we trust in ourself and our product, we offer 2 years of guarantee on our hulls.
