Zodiac, back in the Vendée Globe for the 10th edition

A pioneer in RIBs with 125 years' experience, Zodiac has been providing the RIB fleets of sailing event organisers for many years. For 2024, the brand is renewing its ties with the greatest of ocean races by becoming an official partner of the Vendée Globe. The 40 skippers, escorted by a safety fleet of 42 Zodiac RIBs, will set off across the seas of the globe.


True ocean adventurers, Zodiac RIBs have the reputation of being extremely resistant and reliable, thanks to materials and manufacturing processes that are always at the cutting edge of technology. A very low centre of gravity, a deep V hull and very seaworthy floats give these boats exceptional speed and crossing capacity in rough seas. These are essential features to ensure the best possible safety on the water at the start of the next Vendée Globe, where 40 solo skippers will be at the helm of their IMOCA boats, a record number for this unique race. This security system will also be available to the organisers to welcome the winner of this 10th edition and all the other competitors to the finish line and as they make their way up the legendary channel in Les Sables d'Olonne.

42 Zodiac limited editions

The famous brand has announced an official partnership agreement with the organisers. It will produce 42 limited edition custom-built RIBs in the colours of the legendary non-stop, non-assisted, single-handed round the world race. They will then be available for sale.
