GREEN DRAGON is the most perfect Volvo 70 Class boat to combine serious racing, race charter, cruising and conversion project.

  • large spare rigging inventory
  • engine Saildrive transmission fitted (reliable and safe - no further hassle with retractable shaft)
  • no hydraulics for trimming
  • extremely weel built hull, no structural problems during the Volvo Ocean Race and since very little use and almost no serious racing after the Volvo Ocean Race
