Our Legacy in the Marine industry dates to 1975 with the launch of Monomaran.  Eric Goetz, Chief Technology Officer, is widely considered a pioneer in the development of advanced composites for high-performance applications.

  • 1984 – Jubilation (Frers 54) introduced the extensive use of carbon fiber to reduce weight and increase strength
  • 1990 – In conjunction with Stanford University Department of Aeronautics, MIT, and Hercules, Inc (now Ashland), Eric Goetz led a team to build the first prepreg carbon boat in the United States.  This program resulted in the successful Challenge for the 1992 America’s Cup (America3)
  • 10 America’s Cup Challengers & Defenders
  • 5 Volvo Ocean Race (Whitbread) Campaigns

Goetz Composites works closely with partners/clients to develop and test new technologies for cutting-edge marine applications.  

Recent Projects Include:

  • Foiling Boats
  • Advanced Foil Control Systems
  • High Voltage Electric Propulsion
  • Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USV)
  • Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUV)

Why Carbon Fiber?

Carbon fiber has its earliest history in the aerospace and military industries. Only recently have we begun to see its more widespread use and application in high-performance consumer products and the automotive industries. Goetz has been a pioneer in the business and the evolution of this highly engineered and exacting science. Simply put: Goetz delivers the absolute lightest structures possible at a required strength.
