Amber Composites Receives Sunseeker Supplier of the Year Award

05 October 2011

Amber Composites have received The Supplier of the Year Award for Technical Innovation from leading luxury motor yacht manufacturer, Sunseeker International.

They explain that the award was presented by Sunseeker founder Robert Braithwaite at the Southampton Boat Show and is in recognition of their development and supply of prepreg material. Amber Composites and Sunseeker International have collaborated on several projects utilising prepreg. According to Amber, in 2009, they worked with Sunseeker to create a sledge made from prepreg to support the Help for Heroes Kilimanjaro climb. Building on that success, Amber developed a new resin system for Sunseeker in 2010, Multipreg E520, for a lateral hoop on the flybridge of the Manhattan 73. The hoop provides strength and stiffness at a high point in the superstructure where weight savings is particularly desirable.
