Proa, trimaran and catamarans
Rive Sud, based in Sète, is working hard at the moment, with refits as well as some nice projects in composites. First of all there is the Harry Proa 40’, currently under construction and to be launched very soon…
But the builder also has a lot of refit work, with the Golden Oldies fleet of trimarans (Aile Bleue, Pat's, Moxie, the ex-Fleury Michon IV) or repair, following a dismasting – a 30m carbon mast from an Orma 60...But that’s not all, as the builder has started construction of a trawler catamaran (RS 57 '), designed by David Reard, 17 m long and 7.5m wide, with an unladen weight of 9.2 tonnes. Propelled by 2 x 75 hp Yanmars, consumption should be just 1 litre/mile at 8/9 knots... This boat meets a specification aiming for simplicity in use, fuel economy and easy maintenance. The launch is planned for autumn 2014. An eclectic builder!
