Ventio - Launch of a future rocket ship!

Create a notification for "Catamaran"

This catamaran, designed by Nicolas Purnu (a former partner of Marc Lombard, now based in Brittany with his own firm), has no hard nacelle - the central area will be fully protected by a large retractable canopy. The galley will be located aft of the mast bulkhead, along with a U-shaped deck saloon and a large 85 cm x 135 cm (33½ x 52”) table on a sliding base. The berths are located in the hulls. This Ventio #1, rigged with a carbon mast and daggerboards, is clearly performance-oriented and even optimized for sailing on one hull, thanks to a comprehensive NKE electronics package connected to two Cyclops electronic turnbuckles. This means it will be possible to monitor shroud tension in real time: this is going to be sporty! Test scheduled for this coming June.
