Since the first America’s Cup race back in 1851, generations of sailors have challenged themselves to push back the barriers of human possibility and technology. Like them, Yanmar believes in the power of people to challenge and create new possibilities and technologies. Yanmar calls this idea “HANASAKA”, an expression of founder, Magokichi Yamaoka’s spirit, and his belief in the power of people.
Over the years, Yanmar’s strong commitment to supporting the America’s Cup has been showcased through a series of significant sponsorship activities. In the 34th edition held in San Francisco, USA in 2013, Yanmar took on the role of the Official Technical Partner of Oracle Team USA. This partnership extended to the subsequent edition, the 35th America’s Cup held in Bermuda from 2015 to 2017, where Yanmar continued as the Official Technical Partner of Oracle Team USA and also earned the title of Official Marine Partner of the America’s Cup itself. The trend of close collaboration persisted into the 36th edition held in Auckland, New Zealand from 2019 to 2021, where Yanmar held the distinction of being the Official Marine Partner once again.
Now, as the 37th edition gears up to take place in Barcelona, Spain, Yanmar continues to show its commitment by taking on the role of an Official Sponsor, reaffirming its enduring partnership with the prestigious America’s Cup event.
