Whitecap Composites Finishes First with Durant
Whitecap Composites was established in response to a need for dependable and high quality one-design racing sailboats. Whitecap is the boat builder of choice for some of the top collegiate sailing programs in the country.   When it comes to building a one design racing dingy with improved structural integrity, a higher level of consistency, and a more performance oriented feel, many of the country’s scholastic racing programs turned to Whitecap, and Whitecap turned to Durant for solutions.

Sabre Yachts Corporation, located in South Casco, Maine, U.S.A., has been hand crafting high quality sailboats and motor yachts since 1971. Their boats combine cutting-edge design and fabrication with skills derived from the boat building tradition that has been alive in Maine since the 16th century. The quality of the boats and the skill of their craftsmen and women are without equal in the boating industry.  Sabre stresses excellence at all stages of the boat building operation.  Sabre’s search for excellence does not end at their doors. Suppliers are chosen among industry leaders known for their reputation and the excellence of the products they manufacture based on their high quality, excellent service and product reliability.

Both Whitecap and Sabre Yachts have recently chosen to build with Durant Performance Coatings DUROBOND Compounds, supplied by Composites One Northeast Business Unit. Whitecap and Sabre are among a steadily growing list of premier marine manufactures that incorporate our Dur-O-Bond Composite Compounds into their vessels.  Several of the products that they will be using were developed exclusively for use by premier yacht builders after extensive research and design work by Durant’s technical experts.  Durant is extremely proud that these fine companies have selected yet another Durant product to use in their building process
