Hugo Boss Yacht Launches
The Hugo Boss Yacht, set to be raced by British sailor Alex Thomson was christened at The River Thames on September 19. A star-studded event, the new yacht sailed in front of the London Tower Bridge before it was officially christened by model and actor Poppy Delevigne. Named the IMOCA 60 Yacht, the yacht is built with a focus on sustainability, innovation, and design, being the work of a partnership between the Alex Thomson Racing technical team, naval architects VPLP, boat builder Jason Carrington, and industrial designer Karim Rashid. The goal for the HUGO BOSS yacht is to win the 2020-21 Vendée Globe.
