WATERMAN CO

Waterman Co. was born in 2016 in Mar del Plata, Argentina, with the aim of designing and building products in carbon fiber and composite materials for watersports.

Our main objective is to offer high quality products. Deepening in every detail, from the conceptual design to the final product. Prioritizing both hydrodynamics, stiffness and weight savings as well as the quality of construction and finish, without neglecting the final cost.

We use technological tools for the design, structural calculation and construction of products: 2D & 3D CAD modeling, CNC machined tooling, parts made of different metals and alloys, pre-preg carbon fiber parts, infusion and RTM (resin transfer molding).

Tomas Ballestrin and Joaquin Zerbo met in university in 2004 and since then they are friends and work together in many projects.

They were participants and witnesses to the booming of foiling yachts being members of design teams in America’s cup projects: AC34 San Francisco USA 2013, AC35 Bermuda UK 2017, AC36 Auckland NZ 2021.

Passionate, meticulous and with great capacity to carry forward the proposed projects, both cover the necessary aspects of design, engineering, management, construction and testing for the creation and realization of Waterman Co products.
