Performance, speed and glide have been taken to the next level with the High Aspect 1125. It was developed with key design input from Pete Burling, helmsman of Team New Zealand’s Americas Cup yacht (Current AC holders) and tested by legendary sailor, Jimmy Spithill.
Pete, Jimmy and Armie became friends as foiling united their search and passion for ultimate performance and glide on downwind runs. The mad scientist and these high-performance sailing gurus have collaborated to create something the likes of which has not seen before outside the Americas Cup!
