Vento di Sardegna then No Way Back then Newrest-Arts & Fenêtres then Nexans-Arts & Fenêtres
Commissioned for the Sardinian sailor Andrea Mura, the sixth and final IMOCA of the 2015 generation designed by VPLP was ultimately sold to Pieter Heerema for his attempt at the 2016 Vendée Globe.
Built at the Persico yard in Italy under the meticulous direction of Antoine Mermod, No Way Back was a sistership to Banque Populaire VIII and Safran 2, and shared a similar hull design that focused on power and reaching.
Simpler than her five predecessors, she also benefited from lessons learnt in the Transat Jacques Vabre, a first test for the foiling IMOCAs in the autumn of 2015.
After the 2016–17 Vendée Globe, she was sold to Fabrice Amedeo and renamed Newrest-Arts & Fenêtres in readiness for the following edition of the Vendée Globe, which saw her forced to retire in the Indian Ocean. She is currently competing with the same skipper under the name Nexans-Arts & Fenêtres.
