They explored the overall strength of “made in Qingdao” and the upcoming Mazarin 72ft sport-leisure sailing boat.
When Mazarin met with Clipper the dream is never far away. The 12 70ft racing boats that have been racing for the past two years, were all build by Mazarin (Qingdao) Shipyard. This is the first time that professional grand sailing boats built in China were used in a international round the world boat race.
On Dec 26th, 2012, the first “made in Qingdao” Clipper 70ft sailing boat was launched in Qianwan Port, Huangdao District, Qingdao. A year later, the 12 racing boats set sail from London and started the journey of Clipper Round the World Race. Compliments from the racers and medias proved that they are paragons of sailing boats. The boats adopt a unique streamlined appearance. Their sailing speed could reach 18knots without any power. The hull as a whole is vacuum infusioned , so the weight is 20% less compare with that of conventional process. Many parts of the hull are reinforced with carbon fibers. The fact that they are still competing in the race proves their quality and reliability.
