Raymarine Ambassadors & Sponsorship

Pushing Raymarine Products to the Limits

From fast and furious powerboat racers to world cruisers, top class fishermen to world record breaking rowers; our ambassadors are pushing the boundaries and testing our marine equipment at extreme limits.

Not only do our ambassadors give us great direction for future product development but they provide some great hints and tips, videos and how-to's for all who love to live life on the water.

We are always interested in hearing from individuals and teams looking to become Raymarine ambassadors, for sponsorship and charity support. We receive hundreds of applications each year and in order to help both us and you when considering your proposal please read the following FAQ’s before contacting us.
