Volvo 70 Ericsson 1

2,000.0015,000.00

E1 competed in the 2005 – 2006 Volvo Ocean Race as Ericsson Racing Team with Neal McDonald as skipper. E1 is a Volvo 70 Class boat for serious racing, race charter and cruising. She is in good overall condition with the following components renewed in 2019: standing rigging, running rigging, radar, plotters, autopilot, head, batteries, charging systems, engine (just a few hundred hours) and Saildrive transmission. She also has an improved keel system and the old well-known problem with the keel sliding doors have been eliminated.

She is a good downwind racer and sailor and really fast from light to heavy conditions. A race like the ARC or the Rolex Middle Sea Race suits her well. The maximum crew for offshore sailing is 20 and for inshore sailing 25. The boat comes with a professional skipper, and up to 2 or 3 crew members depending on your needs.

Her home base is Vigo in Spain, which makes her easy available for sailing in Northern Europe, the UK and the Mediterranean but she can also easily cross the Atlantic Ocean for sailing in the Caribbean and America’s.
