Meet the Sailutions team

Kjell Andersson

Originally from Sweden, where water is a way of life, sailing is in Kjell’s blood. He’s clocked up thousands of ocean miles, so he fully understands the extreme demands placed on the rigging and hardware of offshore cruising yachts.

After sailing to New Zealand with his wife in 1998, Kjell bought into Sailutions in 2000, when it was known as Nordic Marketing, and took full ownership in 2013. He changed the name to reflect his aim to provide practical and fit-for-purpose rigging solutions to sailors, using the highest quality Swedish rigging and hardware brands: Seldén, Rutgerson, and Furlex.


Cory McLennan

Born and raised in Greymouth, Cory had to battle harder than most to achieve his dreams of becoming a solo offshore yachtsman. But his grit and determination at just 19 years of age saw him become the youngest person ever to compete in – and complete – the Solo Trans Tasman Yacht Race.

Immersed in yacht racing from an early age, Cory has racked up a huge breadth of sailing experience: from fully crewed TP52 harbour racing, to solo offshore racing on Mini 650s, and just about everything in between. He joined the Sailutions team in 2018 and shares Kjell’s passion for developing rigging solutions that do what’s expected of them.
