The Volvo Ocean 65 is the one-design boat that contested the 2014-15 edition of the Volvo Ocean Race. It will also be the one design used for the 2017-18 and 2021-22 edition. At 65ft LOA the new yachts are slightly shorter than the previous generation of Volvo Open 70s but will be more reliable, robust and affordable while still being a very high performance racing boat. There are 8 Volvo Ocean 65's. They have all been brought to the same standard between the 2014–2015 and the 2017–2018 race.Know more
