Designed in partnership by the Alex Thomson Racing team – led by Design Manager Pete Hobson – and French naval architects VPLP, the new HUGO BOSS boat is the first of its kind in the world.
The product of more than two years of painstaking design and build work, undertaken by more than 100 naval architects, designers, engineers and boat builders, the IMOCA 60 race boat has been built with one goal in mind – to win the Vendée Globe in 2020-21.
To date it has taken 26 months, 50,000 man hours and £5.5 million to get the boat in the water. But what a boat!
