For the Solitaire du Figaro races, Joan races in a Beneteau Figaro III. This groundbreaking design, released in 2019, is the world's first production foil-assisted monohull. 30ft (10m) in length and equipped with 7 different sails, the boat can reach speeds of up to 23 knots.
The boat Joan would race for the Vendée Globe race is an IMOCA 60, a 60ft (19m) monohull, made entirely of carbon fibre. With a 95ft (29m) mast the boats can race around the world in as little as 71 days.
