Line 7 Marine relaunches in the Caribbean
Superyacht apparel range available through Antigua-based supplier.
Line 7 Marine has announced that it is relaunching in the Caribbean via Antigua-based Jane’s Yacht Services which will stock the full range of the brand's new superyacht technical apparel.
This will be the first time the brand has been seen in the Caribbean since 2014 and will be supported by a warehouse based in California due to open later this year.
“Jane Midson, director of Jane’s Yacht Services, and her dedicated team of staff intimately understand the unique needs of crew and we’re thrilled to welcome them into Line 7 Marine’s fold,” said Line 7’s business manager, Danielle Lambert.
Midson is a professional skipper with a decade of experience competing on the water and two decades of experience assisting superyacht crews
“A New Zealander myself, I’ve long worked to champion quality New Zealand-designed products throughout the Caribbean and Line 7 is a quality product fit for superyacht crew,” said Midson.
“Wrinkle-free, fast drying fabrics mean less time in the laundry and the fit for all of the pieces in the range will keep even the most discerning chief stewardess happy.
“We have a full range of samples in all sizes to meet fitting requirements for both superyacht uniform and race uniform. Custom-designed branding can also be produced for crew on request with a turnaround time that meets the discerning expectations of the industry.”
The relaunch of the Line 7 brand last year saw its adoption by 40m motoryacht SilentWorld, a Benetti 37m motoryacht, a Dubois-designed 35m sailing yacht, a 58m Perini Navi, a 43m sloop from Vitters and a 50m motoryacht currently in-build.
Winner of the 2016 Rolex Sydney to Hobart, Perpetual Loyal, and the 2017 NZ Millennium Cup, Tawera, both chose the brand for their crew uniforms, and the largest squad in the history of the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron’s Youth Training Programme also elected to wear Line 7.
Line 7 was also the official clothing supplier to the 2016 ISAF World Sailing Championships in Melbourne and the 2016 Aon Youth Sailing World Championships in Auckland.
