13 December 2013 - GREEN MARINE HANDS OVER THE SECOND VOLVO OCEAN 65

Green Marine have now officially handed over the Volvo Ocean 65 ‘Dongfeng’ to OC Sport.

Dongfeng has successfully completed its sea trials in the Solent, UK and has been lifted out of the water in preparation for shipment on the 18th of December to Hong Kong. “The sea trials and boat tests have gone really well over the past 10 days and Green Marine has done a fantastic job,” said Team Director, Bruno Dubois. “It’s a special first milestone for the Dongfeng Race Team campaign and it feels like it starts here as the team take delivery of the boat, and we begin our very exciting journey to the start line of the Volvo Ocean Race just 10 months away.”

Green Marine is responsible for the complete assembly and fit out of the Volvo Ocean 65s. Over the course of a 18-week period for the boat, Green Marine assembles the primary and secondary structures, installs and fits out the interior including all electrical, hydraulic, steering and other systems, fits the keel and deck gear, and finally paints and commissions the finished yacht.
