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!! Built to weather the storms of the Southern Ocean on the Volvo Ocean Race circumnavigation, you’ll be hoping for bad weather to really feel this boat’s potential…
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.
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!
This season the Volvo 70 is in the Caribbean, watch this space for events booking upon its return.
