Product Description

The Volvo 70 Ocean Race Yacht is a class of racing yachts designed for the Volvo Ocean Race. It was first used in the 2005–06 race and replaced the Volvo Ocean 60 Yachts, which were first raced in 1993. The Volvo Ocean 70 uses a Canting keel which is capable of canting transversely up to an angle of 40 degrees. According to the VO70 rule, the yachts can be made from glass fibres, aramid fibres, or carbon fibres. Kraken is made of Carbon Fibre. The Volvo Open 70 race rules are similar to those of a Formula One race team, as there is not a specific yacht design but a set of rules which competing yachts need to adhere to.

Originally known as Telefonica Black or Black Jack, she competed in the 08/09 Volvo Ocean Race and finished overall in 6th position, winning the final leg into St Petersburg and skippered by Fernando Echávarri. She was then bought with a view to complete the Westabout Race, but unfortunately, the project did not get off the ground and she has been berthed in Portland Marina for the last few years.

Now you can have the opportunity to charter her for either a day, weekend or for a race series or book as an individual.

The boat comes with a professional skipper, mate and up to 3 crew members depending on your needs. She can take up to 12 guests and is located in Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth. However, the boat can be relocated anywhere to suit your requirements. Krakens team specialised in creating a tailor make a package to suit you and your guest’s exact needs on and off the water. There are many different options for boat charter, from days out on the Solent to race campaigns all over the world.
