Católica Porto was the first brand to join BBDouro, after 4 months of existence – July 2012. With three decorated boats, the use made of them is closely linked to the behavioral dimension and skills development of the students of their MBA’s and its business partners.
With the most colorful boat of BBDouro’s fleet, Cin Group, leader of the national painting market, chooses the association with BBDouro to communicate the brand in an eco-friendly way and associated to an healthy sport. This partnership began in January 2013, nearly a year after the beginning of BBDouro´s activity.
The famous Extreme Clipper-class Cutty Sark tea transporter is the latest vessel of its kind, preserved as a symbol of an era by the whiskey with the same name. The image of this boat is now sailing trough one of our sailboats along the Douro River since the brand Cutty Sark is the latest sponsor to join BBDouro´s fleet.
It is in 2021 that BBDouro welcomes in its fleet the green image of Goldenergy, and there could be no better time for the birth of this partnership: a company linked to sailing with ever greater and better defined sustainability and ecology goals, and the only 100% green energy company in Portugal. This is a union that, as stated by the sailboat that now carries the image of Goldenergy, brings to the riverside areas of Porto and Gaia that “the wind is not just for sailing”.
Landrover’s JOP dealer is now sailing the Douro River, bringing a new life to the BBDouro fleet, due to its metallic and highly reflective decoration. This boat shows JOP and Landrover’s union through the atypical front bumper grille that characterizes the latest Range Rover of the English brand.
We can now appreciate the sight of these two brands on a sailboat that can go anywhere, such as the luxury car of the new generation Range Rover.
By seas never sailed before, the Lusíadas Saúde group is now debuting as the latest brand to join BBDouro’s fleet. You´ll be able to watch this new boat, also blue, sailing along the Douro River with the group´s message “We Know How to Care”. This group aims to improve the performance of the health system as well as the health and overall well-being of its clients and those close to them. After all, this motto goes along with the philosophy of BBDouro, where the clients necessities come first.
Montepio Geral – Associação Mutualista is the largest association with a mutual base in Portugal. So it is with great pride to have as Main Sponsor of our Vela Sem Barreiras project this company that believed from the beginning in this project that aims to improve the lives of people with physical and / or motor limitations. The boat, unlike any other for being a catamaran designed from scratch for the purpose of the project, now walks with the message “Together for Everyone”.
The beginning of this partnership matches with the process of a rebranding (September 2013) which led to the new brand of the group; NORS. The christening of the NORS boat was a celebration reason for more than 50 employees, including managers and employees of several countries. Its association to the sport of sailing began several years ago and the NORS boat is used for improving and developing skills of employees, being the boat branding also a distinctive element.
The association between BBDouro and Redifogo comes from 2013, through our Sailing Cup Regatta. Being a fundamental part in all the security features of BBDouro, Redifogo has a branded boat, since 2015, sailing safely in the Douro River.
