AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS: AkzoNobel NV and Volvo Ocean Race have partnered to create race boat experience and to explore a life-size replica of the competing Volvo Ocean 65 (VO65) yachts.

The race boat experience marquee features a cross-section of the one-design boat which offers a fascinating insight into life on board. It also highlights how AkzoNobel products are making an essential contribution to all the Volvo Ocean 65s in the fleet – not just the team AkzoNobel boat.

As well as the cross-section itself, the attraction also includes a huge information board illustrating the key areas of the boats where AkzoNobel’s products can be found.

The race boat experience partnership further extends the company’s commitment to the 2017-18 Volvo Ocean Race, beyond the involvement of team AkzoNobel. As well as being a sustainability partner for the forthcoming edition, the company’s International brand is both official coatings supplier to the Volvo Ocean Race Boatyard and the official Youth Academy Partner.

“Visiting the race boat experience is the next best thing to standing on an actual Volvo Ocean 65,” said Alberto Slikta, managing director of AkzoNobel’s speciality coatings business.
