Macif : A new giant trimaran is being born...
Over a year ago now, Macif announced its intention to continue its investment in sailing, and the start of construction of a 100-foot trimaran for François Gabart, its in-house skipper, winner of the last Vendée Globe and the Route du Rhum in the IMOCA category.
At the end of December, the 30 meter long central hull was transferred from Multiplast to CDK. The 37 meter long wide load took less than 2 hours to carry out the fifty kilometer journey between the two yards, with no mishaps. All the elements have now been brought together at the yard, and the final assembly will begin soon, with the launch planned for some time during the summer of 2015.
