As a global leader in marine electrical systems and components, Mastervolt is once again a proud and dedicated race supplier of the legendary Volvo Ocean Race. Here, at the world’s longest sporting event, we fulfill our ambitious mission: the power to be independent. This independency from the grid is what we offer the teams during their 45.000 nautical miles around the world. All participating boats will be powered by the same innovative power system, centered around our famous Mastervolt Lithium Ion batteries en CZone digital switching. We wish all crews a safe journey across four oceans, touching six continents and 12 landmark Host Cities. We will give you all the power you need!
Enjoy the first video report from the M-Team shot at the start of the race in Alicante and the second leg from Lisbon to Cape Town. First of all we give you extensive insight in the electrical system that we have designed for the VO65 boats and we had the pleasure to interview Neil Cox, the Head of the Volvo Ocean Race Boatyard. He emphasizes “the huge role” of Mastervolt in providing flawless power on every participating vessel.
During the full race Mastervolt’s M-Team, a dedicated team of technical specialists, will be available for the crews. The M-Team will man the technical support hotline and at each and every stopover a Mastervolt engineer is available to monitor the systems on board of every vessel and help out when problems arise.
