26 MAY 2015- GREEN MARINE ATTENDS NEWPORT STOPOVER

Green Marine caught up with the Volvo Ocean Race fleet recently during the stopover in Newport.

After travelling over 30,000nm, the six VO65 Volvo Ocean race one-design boats, which were built at Green Marine alongside the Volvo Ocean Race Consortium members, looked as fresh as the day they left our yard in Hythe. 

Whilst at the stopover, we were lucky enough to spend some time with Dongfeng's Eric Peron, who showed us below deck and mentioned that the only thing he would change with the boat is the kitchen - we guess it can't be easy living off of rehydrated food for seven months, but we're very glad the VO65s are such a success!

We thought we'd share some images of the boats with you!
