Marine Hydraulic Consultancy, (MHC), the leading international provider of electro-hydraulic and control systems for superyachts, has established an exciting new partnership with the J Class Association.

The partnership formalizes the long-standing commitment that MHC has already demonstrated to the J Class Fleet, serving to strengthen the alliance between them.

The J Class Association, which was founded in 2000 to protect the interests of this historic class, is now looking ahead to the 2021 J Class regatta in Auckland, New Zealand which will form part of the 36th America's Cup celebrations.

Louise Morton, Class Secretary, commented on the new partnership: "MHC is well-positioned to continue to provide support to the fleet on and off the water as excitement winds up towards the 2021 America's Cup event where we expect to have five J Class yachts competing. As the class gets more competitive, Marine Hydraulic Consultancy's existing knowledge of the class and the support they can provide to each of the owners will be a big benefit."

Marine Hydraulic Consultancy has provided electro-hydraulic sailing controls for many of the J Class Fleet over the last 10 years including new builds and refits. These relationships are ongoing and aimed at supporting the success of each yacht. "The J's are near and dear to us here at MHC," said Alan Severns, Owner, Marine Hydraulic Consultancy. "We want to thank the J Class Association for their continued support and the J Class owners and teams who have entrusted their performance projects to MHC over the years. We look forward to the coming years and continued support, especially, as America's Cup draws near and opportunities to support and promote the celebrated J Class increase."

Marine Hydraulic Consultancy is located on the scenic Kitsap Peninsula in Washington state. For over ten years MHC has been providing leading technology for superyacht electro-hydraulic systems. Learn more about MHC at
