UNIFORMS FOR YACHTS with custom Embroidery & Screenprinting



Avril and David Howe  have been involved with yachts since starting to sail professionally in the late 1960s. They met in Newport during the Americas Cup year of 1974 and ran various boats together until 1987 when Avril moved ashore.
They began Superfine in June 1990, and while Avril ran the business full time, David helped out for the six months that he was home. During the other six months he was on duty as captain of Mikado, a job that he shared with another skipper. Since 1997, when Mikado was sold, they have both been employed by Superfine, although David, as the holder of a Class 4 ticket, signs on as captain for the occasional delivery or relief job, and usually does three or four transatlantic crossings a year.
