The Volvo 60

The Volvo 60, ‘Team Heiner One’, formerly known as ‘Tyco’ lies either in our Portuguese home harbour Portimão, or in Den Helder in The Netherlands.

Tyco participated in the 2001/2002 Volvo Ocean Race under the New Zealand skipper Kevin Shoebridge. Team Tyco ended 4th overall. The boat is a Farr Yacht design and was built by Eric Goetz Custom Sailboats in Rhode Island.

The V60 ‘Team Heiner One’ has been totally renovated and brought back into racing condition. Team ABN AMRO used the V60 as the training boat for the preparation of the Volvo Ocean Race 2005/2006. Team Heiner uses the boat the most for company events and management training sessions, but also for races such as the Antwerp Race and the spectacular Round Ireland Race.
