All technical systems refitted, the underwater ship redone and a saildrive installed.
Owner: Her big strength is power reaching which her design had been optimised for.
Special features make her outstanding from most other Volvo 70:
- The new saildrive istallation was done in a way that the original retractable shaft stayed in place. For serious racing the saildrive can be removed and the original gearbox connected to the retractable shaft within few hours e.g. while the underwater is being cleaned. This feature is unique in all the sailing world.
- The runner winches are connected to the pedestal system so they can be used for gennaker or genoa sheets when peeling or other sail maneuvers like furling without swapping winches for the sheets
