The Seaexplorer-Yacht Club de Monaco (formerly the Malizia II) has finished in the top five of the Vendée Globe 2020. It is the same vessel on which Greta Thunberg crossed the Atlantic in summer 2019.
Eighty days at sea, alone, with no stops and no assistance. This is what skipper Boris Herrmann achieved on board the iconic yacht from the Yacht Club de Monaco and Team Malizia: the Seaexplorer. Competing in the Vendée Globe for the first time, the German skipper completed his circumnavigation of the planet in fifth position, following an exceptional race. He only just missed out on a podium position after hitting a boat 90 miles from the finish line.
