Aikane 56 catamaran: the will to create the ‘Stradivarius’ of boats


The word Aikane (pronounced ‘akané’) is take from a wonderful book by Richard Henry Dana, ‘Two years on the forecastle’. Aikane means the friend, the confidant, the sibling. Aikane is also the name of a splendid 56-footer built in Trinidad. This catamaran uses the latest for making sailboats. We tested for you.


Tobago, November 2000. In the morning light, the Aikane 56 catamaran pulls on her mooring rope. A short roof, transoms running far back, the line is pure, the proportions perfect. Her designer - and the initiator of the project, Frédérick Lagache, was trained at the École Boulle. The Aikane is his brainchild. Of his 25 years in advertising, he has retained his love for lovely beautiful things that run smoothly. ‘My parents were artists,’ he says. He participated in the project for the Titouan Lamazou’s big schooner. After a year with the yacht designers Van Peteghem-Lauriot-Prevost, in 1996, work began in Trinidad. Everything had to be created from scratch. At the end of several years of labor, the result is here. Except for the French team supervising the work, this boat was built entirely by craftsmen from Trinidad and they are proud of it. Here is a guided tour of an exceptional catamaran.
