De Boer is nearing the end of its time with the Volvo Ocean Race, which will finish its ten-month circuit in Gothenburg, Sweden on 27 June.
This is the fourth consecutive build for De Boer at the Volvo Ocean Race series, working alongside Volvo partner PS Communications and Space Display.
Due to the short periods between race stops, De Boer has been working with two core teams to transport and manage construction at the nine major race legs and two additional teams have been managing the short stopovers at Lorient and The Hague.
The two teams have been leap-frogging each other around the course, with one building on site and the other fitting-out the upcoming destination. It has taken the team nine days to each erect large Volvo Pavilion and four to dismantle the structure.
With limited for the build, De Boer has prepared components including thousands of aluminium and wooden frames, boards and glass panels, as well as 500sqm of roof canopy.
The Volvo Ocean Race has crossed nine countries across five continents in its 11 legs. Dubbed the world's toughest sailing race, it finishes this Sunday.
