MACIF maxi-tri centre hull transported

First glimpse of Francois Gabart's latest weapon

Monday December 15th 2014, Author: James Boyd, Location: France

An important step has taken place in the construction of Francois Gabart's new maxi-trimaran MACIF: The 30m long central hull has been transferred from Chantier Multiplast in Vannes to CDK Keroman, where the trimaran is to be assembled over the course of the spring/summer. The 37m  long transportation took less than two hours to safely travel between Vannes and Lorient.

The 100ft long trimaran is due for launch in June ready for a program of racing and record breaking over the course of 2015-19.

    Interesting early peek at this tri. No doubt it will be a fearsome beast. Trouble is, Gabart, despite his mono achievements is going to be on very steep learning curve. Is Desjoyeaux going to tutor him again!?
