Product Description

History Volvo 70

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.
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.

Volvo 70 Monster Project

Monster Project, formerly S.Y Kosatka (Russian for Orca), is a second-generation Volvo 70. She competed in the 2008-2009 Volvo Ocean Race Round the World. She was established and funded by the Russian supermarket chain founder, Oleg Zherebtsov. It was the only Volvo Open 70 campaign to be funded by a private individual and without sponsorship. But funds ran out after the boat arrived in Singapore and the team retired.
Monster Project is under new ownership since the end of 2019 and all technical systems are refitted and the underwater ship has been redone.
