Check this new trimaran out that just launched over in multihull-crazy France. It comes from Eric Bruneel who left Fountaine Pajot recently. As you could probably guess, this spaceship is designed for fast cruising, and early reports say it should be capable of sailing at more than 10 knots average, and reeling off 300 mile days offshore.
It’s also reported to be able to get up to speeds in 15 to 20 knot range when the wind picks up It’s set up like the big french racing trimarans but with legit living space. It has as a huge square top main, Vectran shrouds and forestay, a big reacher, carbon rudder, and weight distribution is centered to limiting pitching. It’s certainly different, and very French, and who wouldn’t want to cruise easily at 10 knots. The boat’s website is pretty cool too. www.neel-trimarans.com
