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

Special features make her outstanding from most other Volvo 70:

  • With her cockpit layout with the additional pair of traveller winches she is the best choice for large pro-am crews.
  • a retrofitted Saildrive is replacing the original retractable shaft and makes the boat a lot safer and reliable in harbour and safety maneuvers
  • no hydraulic trimming is a big plus when being operated by pro-am crews
  • Full set of good sails from Brunel

Green Dragon competed in the 2008/09 Volvo Ocean Race. It was the first participation of skipper Ian Walker who later won the Volvo Ovean Race in the first edition of the Volvo 65 class with Abu Dhabi. Green Dragon is a very good overall performer and has a sweet spot in reaching. Current home base is Vigo in Spain, an excellent strategic place located half way between North Europe and the Med as well as being an ideal departure and arrival place for Atlantic crossings.
