This Volvo 70 finished on the podium of the 2011/2012 Volvo Ocean Race, WINNING THE LAST LEG. She also collected the 24hr speed record. Built by Cookson Boats of NZ and Principal designer is Marcelino Botin, both parties have built and designed some the worlds fastest racing yachts. Spars are by Southern Spars.
Immaculately presented and maintained, comes complete with a very extensive spares inventory which includes 2 x rigs incl rigging, booms, 2 cradles, rudders and dagger boards plus full sail package.
The boat would make for an ideal offshore campaign to chase and beat records as she has been tried and tested and now comes with complete inventory and spares all ready to go.
Other options are for thrill seekers, this is a yacht at the very highest level of offshore sailing or a vehicle for a corporate experiential/advertising campaign.
The boat is currently laying ashore in Hamble just outside our office and can be viewed anytime
