Green Dragon

Green Dragon is perhaps the most suitable Volvo 70 around for a combined use of serious racing, race charter, cruising and a conversion. There are several features making her preferable to other Volvo 70s

  • contemporary Carbon C6 Rigging not having any expiry date like Kevlar or PBO
  • saildrive retrofitted, very reliable and safe
  • no longer hassle with retractable shaft
  • no hydraulics for trimming
  • well buit hull, no structural problems during the race and later
  • very little use and almost no serious racing after the Volvo Ocean Race
  • due to interior layout of original structure very well suitable for retrofitting interior and conversions
