Friday, 19 September 2014 00:00

Hugo Boss set to fly Alex Thomson Racing has announced the build of the new Hugo Boss IMOCA 60 to be launched in summer 2015, with the aim of winning the 2016 Vendee Globe.

Advances in design technology and the IMOCA 60 open design rule, the boat is likely to feature foils not dissimilar to those featured on the latest America’s Cup boats.

The €3million build has been made possible thanks to support from sponsors and financial backers. The team has chosen Guillaume Verdier and the VPLP Team to design the new Hugo Boss, and is currently in negotiations with Hythe based Green Marine to complete the build.

The boat will be launched in summer 2015, with the objective to be race ready to compete in the Transat Jacques Vabre in late October 2015.

In the meantime, Alex Thomson is preparing to take on the Barcelona World Race, the double-handed, non-stop, round the world race, on 31 December together with co-skipper Pepe Ribes.
