Corporate Sailing /Volvo Open '70 Racing Yacht Charter

Full Battle Configuration

Solent Events are delighted to be able to offer you one of the most exciting 'high octane' racing yachts available for charter anywhere in the world. The Volvo Open '70 is the stuff of legend and this recently retired world girdling racing machine is still set up in its full battle configuration.

Blistering Speed

Designed by Rob Humphries and built entirely of carbon fibre by Green Marine, this immensely powerful racing yacht is capable of speeds in excess of 30 knots - truly extraordinary!!

Take The Helm

With a professional crew to guide you, we often see speeds in excess of 20 knots even in the sheltered waters of the Solent. You will have the opportunity to helm this blistering behemoth and take part in as much rope pulling with the aid of immensely powerful 'coffee grinder' pedestal winches as you can manage. No electric winches on this boat!

Expect few home comforts. If you bought a toothbrush on board the skipper would be likely to saw the handle off to save weight. We have however persuaded him to allow us to pack a delicious lunch.

Incredible Event

Please contact us to see how you can take part in this incredible event and entertain your guests with a truly unique experience. This is the marine equivalent of being allowed to drive a Formula 1 car!
