BREAKING NEWS - MG5 - A NEW CATAMARAN FOR OFFSHORE RACING

This catamaran ordered by Marc Guillemot is intended for racing – taking part in the Route du Rhum - but also for corporate charter, VIP reception at race starts or even for following races. The Barreau/Neuman team of naval architects has designed a very fast catamaran with fine entry bows and a short nacelle, but which won’t be an aggressive war machine. The hulls (infused with glass epoxy) of this 52-footer will be delivered in December by Multiplast. The catamaran will then be assembled by the French skipper at Saint-Philibert, in Brittany. Launch is scheduled for June 2021.

ST FRANCIS 50 MK2 - BAD WEATHER DOESN’T SCARE HER!

Building on their experience with the St Francis 44 and 48, the South African manufacturers have launched an even more comfortable and recently improved 50-footer under the name MK2.
