MerConcept then approached VPLP to take charge of the naval architecture (the two carbon floats are largely inspired by the M101 trimaran, currently being assembled in Brittany), as well as the design, structure and configuration of the appendages. Other companies specializing in electronics, motorization and energy have also contributed to the project. This flying catamaran will be 39 feet (12 meters) long by 16 feet (5 meters) wide. It will be equipped with one main foil and two smaller support planes. Its two electric engines should ensure a range of 90 miles at a cruising speed of 22 knots with a crew of 8 people. Launch is scheduled for late 2021.
