Definitely one of those dreams jobs that come along every so often. FTD has been tasked with overseeing the launch and re-ignition of the Supermarine brand. Supermarine were famous for building the Spitfire planes that defended the UK and provided air superiority during World War 2.
What many people don’t know is that after the war the factories that produced the Spitfire turned their hands to boat and sea plane building as many of the skills and techniques were transferable. Now back in very safe hands, the brand will be producing a modern incarnation of their Swordfish powerboat from the late 1980’s and 1990’s.
Design of the boat is by the world famous Superyacht Designer, Ken Freivokh and the boats themselves will be hyper-luxury captains launches, all individually designed and ‘tailored’ to an owners specific tastes.
Production is set to start in early 2017 and we are extremely proud to say that FTD has been chosen to be AOR (agency of record) to oversee the entire marketing process.
Stay tuned for updates on this project.
