Robi Gripenberg (to the right) hands over the baton to Matti (in the middle) to run the Elvstrøm representation in Finland. Besides being an X-Yachts dealer, Robi has been the Elvstrøm SailPoint since 2015.
“I find that the time is right to hand over the baton in terms of representing the Elvstrøm Sails brand in Finland. I know Matti from 2011 and know him as a good sailor and boat captain, so I feel confident that he will be able to make a difference, he also has a small loft where he can service sails and do some repairs. We will also in the future do some co-operation together with Matti”, says X-Yachts dealer, Robi Gripeberg, who continues as an Elvstrøm subdealer to Matti.
CEO Niels Bjerregaard from Elvstrøm Sails in Denmark; “Finland is a challenging market, but with Matti as a new SailPoint and our good “old” Robi as his sub-dealer I am sure we can take a new and further step into the sailing communities with the Elvstrøm Sails brand targeted all the different Finnish sailors with different requirements. Matti has experience providing a variety of services to boat owners, e.g. rigging, splicing and composite repairs, and with the support from us he is well equipped to give the proper advice on new sails and provide the required service.”
“I look very much forward to teaming up with such a well-established sail maker and brand. Together with Elvstrøm Sails we can now serve both cruising and racing sailors more comprehensively”, Matti winds up.
Matti runs the business with sales of new sails and repairs from his base in Kirkkonummi.
