New maxi trimaran

New maxi trimaran

For 15 years now, Gitana has been one of the major players in ocean racing.

Always at the cutting edge of research, the Gitana Team didn’t hesitate to choose a radical option for the last Route du Rhum, by equipping its Mod 70 with T-shaped rudders, which allowed Sébastien Josse to win a nice 3rd place, faced with much bigger competitors. Since then, the trimaran has been equipped with asymmetric foils and new rudders, and the Multi 70 Edmond de Rothschild has become a real floating, and even flying, laboratory.

Because the aim is clearly to launch into the construction of a new giant of the seas, which should measure between 31 and 35 meters, and allow fully crewed sailing around the world as well as being able to win a singlehanded transat. A multihull equipped with foils which should be at the cutting edge of technology. Construction is planned to start at the end of 2015, for a launch in the middle of 2017.
