In 2017-2018 the Ericsson Racing team will participate in the next Volvo Ocean Race in a Hallberg-Rassy 64.
- "It has showed that the key factor to win the Volvo Ocean Race is to have the most reliable boat", says Geoff Hollingworth, Innovation Director of Ericsson Racing team. "For us the natural choice will be a Hallberg-Rassy 64, known for its reliability".
"It is a great honour being selected for this", says Magnus Rassy of Hallberg-Rassy. The boat will be a standard Hallberg-Rassy 64 with Elvström Epex high tech sails.
