Monocoque IMOCA

IMOCA60 Spirit of Yukoh

Since her launch in 2007, this 60-foot boat has been in the hands of some expert sailors: Sébastien Josse for the 2008-2009 Vendée Globe, Roland Jourdain for his victory in the 2010 Route du Rhum, Allex Thomson for the 2012-2013 Vendée (3rd place) and more recently, Guillermo Altadill and José Munoz in the Barcelona World Race (2nd place). She is therefore one of the older boats with the longest list of successes. She is a good performer and reliable. A Farr designed boat without any excesses, where efficiency was the watchword.
