Need for speed! Contact us about growth capital!


Hugo boss

One of our portfolio companies several years ago had the honor of selling Volvo 70 Yachts with Hugo Boss racing yacht being one of them.  These yachts are fast, but in many races a little extra wind would go a long way for results.

If you need $5-20 million extra capital to grow faster, contact Red Hook Capital!  What is the catch?  You need $4 million plus in EBITDA and strong history of revenue. Let us help you get better results!

Contact JD via text at 858-869-9483.
