When ORACLE TEAM USA won the 33rd America’s Cup in February 2010, not only did team owner Larry Ellison succeed in his goal of bringing the America’s Cup “home” to the United States, but his team became the Defender of the 34th America’s Cup. Equiplite worked closely together with Oracle's design team to customize and upgrade the deck set up.

Led by CEO Russell Coutts and skipper James Spithill, ORACLE TEAM USA is comprised of the best international sailing, design, build and support talent to defend the trophy on San Francisco Bay in 2013.
