Volvo 60

The Volvo 60: Bou Dragon

VO60 class were created in early 1990’s at the famous Bruce Farr’s studio with a clear idea: to combine speed and durability without making compromises, in other words to make a light but firm boat that would measure up to any ordeals one might come across during the most famous and the most difficult regatta in the world – the Volvo Ocean Race. These highly sophisticated sailing machines weigh only 13.5 tons, with a draft of almost 4 meters, sail surface area of 417m2 and a water ballast of 2.5 tons, achieving speeds of over 30 knots, and truly representing the sea equivalent to Formula 1.
