The 12th edition of the world’s most grueling ocean adventure is happening right now.
The Volvo Ocean Race embodies the very same principles we set out for ourselves as an automotive maker—advanced design, safety, innovation, strength, endurance, and care for the environment.
To reach the finish in June 2015, 66 of the world’s top sailors will race 38,739 nautical miles around the world—almost twice the circumference of the Earth. In seven teams, they’ll cross four oceans and stop in 11 countries in five continents operating a fleet of 65-foot high-tech racing machines.
The Volvo Ocean 65 racing yacht is world-class, high-performance, and tough, built with a human-centric focus, just like our cars.
Our Volvo Ocean Race Edition pays tribute to the courageous men and women racing across the oceans, with special design elements that truly embody the soul of human challenge in the special comfort of a Volvo.
