Solo sailing can be lonely at times, & Scott wanted to have his family close to him while he is alone at sea.

The foredeck of our boat displays in bright red paint her number, the number 80, representing the birth year of Scott’s wife. Our boat is named EMIRA after Scott’s children Emma and Keira. EMRA also means leader or princess, which is very fitting for a raceboat!

The 60 foot long IMOCA racing yachts are among the fastest, most modern monohulls in the world. They are built using composite materials, which makes them as light as possible, yet stable enough to withstand even the harshest conditions at sea. Because the class is “open”, designers have the freedom to constantly push boundaries, striving to make the fastest craft possible within the given parameter and dimension restrictions. IMOCA Open 60s are the Formula One of the seas. They are the designated yacht for the IMOCA Globe Series and the Vendée Globe non-stop solo race around the world.
