An eye-catching VPLP design!

Making its world debut in a preview at the International Multihull Show, the GP70 the GP70 showed off its sleek lines. Designed for high-speed blue water cruising, this VPLP design was initially intended for series production by a well-known shipyard at La Grande-Motte, but ultimately, the project has been taken on by Trimarine, based on the Tagus River near Lisbon, Portugal.

Our YouTube Short:

The GP70, built with 80% epoxy carbon sandwich, manages to limit its displacement to 17.5 t. This large, sleek multihull with retractable engine controls has been designed to offer a very high level of self-sufficiency thanks to low consumption by the onboard equipment, a large surface area of solar panels (3 kWp), an efficient watermaker and two imposing 264 US-gallon (1,000 liter) fuel tanks. Under sail, the initial tests have confirmed exceptional performance. As for the significant bridgedeck clearance, this guarantees excellent seakeeping behavior in big seas.
