2020 January, new antifouling

2022 For Sale , Monster Project is a 2nd generation Volvo Open 70 build for 2008/09 Volvo Ocean Race for the Russian backed entry. She was christened Kosatka (which is Russian for Orca or Killer Whale). Kosatka was designed by British designer Rob Humphreys and built by Green Marine in Lymington, UK.Monster Project is an incredibly versatile proposition for any potential new owner. The concept of the Volvo Open 70 design; safety, self sufficiency, reliability and durability makes it capable of sailing at the highest level anywhere in the world. Alternatively if you have the appetite for optimising this already a great design and winning Ocean races then this could be the perfect project. The Volvo Open 70 setup lends itself to being modified into a highly competitive IRC race yacht as has been seen by the Volvo Open 70 Wizard. All systems have been serviced and maintained between October 2019 and the end of January 2020. The engines have been checked and reinstalled, a new saildrive has been installed and all the electric power supply renewed. The antifouling was renewed by Sydney City Marine in January 2020.
