Lego Scale Replica of SCA Volvo Ocean Race Boat
Last year Volvo Ocean Race decided to collaborate with Lego. The result was scale replica of the team SCA boat, made from 100,000 Lego pieces.
Good friends Johan Sahlstrom from Volvo and Anders Christensen from Lego spent 1,200 hours out of work building the SCA LEGO boat. The pair took on the challenge to replicate all the boats functions using real standard Lego pieces, without the use of glue.
Finally constructed and revealed last week, the SCA LEGO boat stands at 3.5 meters high and 2.5 meters long and is 100% to scale of the real Volvo Ocean Race team boat. Unfortunately the Lego version does not float as it is not made of carbon fibre, like the real thing. Watch an interview with the Lego vessel’s creators below.
