History – Our Timeline

From Artemis Racing to Artemis Technologies and our bold new vision “to lead the decarbonisation of maritime”, take a look at how our journey unfolded from our base in the University of Cambridge to becoming the world’s leading high-performance yacht design company and launching the UK’s largest and most advanced composites design and manufacturing facility in Belfast Harbour.

Artemis Racing was founded by Swedish businessman and keen sailor, Torbjörn Törnqvist.

“Artemis is an ancient Greek goddess. She carries a bow and is a hunter – a competitor – but also a protector of nature, both virtues I admire. This is why I named my first racing boat after her, and eventually my team, Artemis Racing”
