Yacht description

This Volvo 70 competed in the Volvo Ocean Race 2008/09 as Telefonica Blue skippered by Bowe Bekking, finishing 3rd and as Sanya Lan skippered by Mike Sanderson in 2011/12.

Owners comments:

Since summer 2020 we did a big general refit bringing her back to top condition. She is one of the fastest Volvo 70 and with the right crew cappable of winning any race.
Current home base is Spain

She has a freshly refitted keel with new main bearings and new bushings for the rams. Also the mast is repainted, all 2024


Special features make her outstanding from most other Volvo 70:
- She has a unique cockpit design with from the companion way aft all the deck floor of the boat being at the same level which allows the crew to work and stack very efficiently.
- The extraordinary cockpit layout also gives plenty of space to move for daysailing with guests or large pro-am crews.
