CDK Technologies, the main contractor for the build, subcontracted the central hull and floats to their partners Multiplast in Vannes, also in Brittany, and Fibre Mechanics in Lymington, in the UK. The new maxi trimaran, bearing the signature of naval architecture firm VPLP and Gsea Design for the structural calculations, features innovations such as a cockpit and foils that are twice of the size as on the previous generations. The multihull is more robust to better integrate the constraints of foiling. It took 24 months, 150,000 hours of work and more than 100 people to complete the build.
