“After winning and defending the America’s Cup, it was time to try something new.”
In 2014, Aaron Hunter and Andrew Rhodes founded Solid Composites. They met 13 years ago as members of Oracle’s America’s Cup shore crew for the 32nd, 33rd and 34th campaigns. There they pushed boundaries, ingeniously constructing Oracle’s boats to surpass expectations and win the 33rd and 34th campaigns. Since then, they moved on to bring their skills of a contemporary in-house racing team to a range of global clients. This has included prototype vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) airplanes, super yachts, TP52 Super Series teams, 35th America’s Cup components, automobile racing components, and luxury products (kayaks, stand up paddle boards, showers, etc.).
With their innate ability to think outside of the box, Solid Composites has brought back the lost art of innovation, craftsmanship and flexibility to composite construction.
