Harken UK of Lymington, Hants, report that by December 20, 2002 the company had achieved a 40% increase in sales over 2001.

"We are over the moon with this year on year increase: the achievement is quite remarkable given the competition we face and have faced in the UK, " said Andy Ash-Vie managing director of Harken UK. "2003 will be interesting as one should never stand on one's laurels which means that we are looking to further increase our business prospects."

This last year has seen us win some major accounts and projects, said Ashe-Vie, such as the hardware refit for the 12 Challenge yachts, Skip Novak's new Pelagic Australis , Musto skiffs, RMW 40 ft high-tech cat, Seastream 650, Mirabella V , etc.

"The America's Cup has also been a great coup, " he added.

"Harken has been specified on nine out of the 10 syndicates and without seeming to be overly confident, we will be on the winning boat, as we were with the Volvo winner illbruck ."
