Our Boat

Rebranded as 11th Hour Racing in summer 2019, the IMOCA 60 class boat (formerly Hugo Boss) was launched in 2015 as one of the most technologically-advanced racing yachts ever built, with hydrofoils to lift the hull out of the water and reduce drag. It was the runner-up in the 2016 Vendee Globe.

It’s a 9-month, 45,000-mile sprint across the world’s oceans. Mark Towill and Charlie Enright are two-time participants, gunning for a third start in Alicante, Spain in the Fall of 2021.
