“The 50’ oceanic Open that Felci Yachts designed for me expressly for the 2000-2001 Vendée Globe is absolutely the fastest and most enjoyable yacht I have ever owned. And it is also the safest because thanks to the generousness of her water line and intelligent distribution of all the volumes and weights I have never heeled dangerously, even in the extreme conditions frequently to be encountered at the 40° and 50° southern latitudes. It’s no exaggeration, therefore, if I affirm that Felci Yachts deserves most of the merit if I was able to finish the Vendée Globe (not only take part) and … come home safe and sound. Furthermore, I must not neglect the fact that my pluriannual relationship with all the members of the Felci Yachts studio has become, and remains, a beautiful story of a friendship”.
