Puma Unveils New Racing Boat For Volvo Ocean Race 2008 2009 In Boston Harbor

Five months before the start of the Volvo Ocean Race 2008-2009, PUMA Ocean Racing had its new racing boat christened “il mostro” by Oscar-nominated actress Salma Hayek in a waterfront ceremony at the Institute of Contemporary Art/ Boston at Fan Pier on Monday, May 12th. The evening included the ceremonial breaking of a bottle of champagne across the Volvo Open 70’s bow by Hayek, the boat’s ‘godmother’ and short speeches by Chairman and CEO of PUMA, Jochen Zeitz, Chief Marketing Officer Antonio Bertone and PUMA Ocean Racing Skipper Ken Read.
