The 10 feet in length (21.20 meters instead of 18.28 meters) identical trimarans display these features in order to guarantee their security, reliability and performance:

  • Smaller sail area (5%) providing more safety when ocean sailing
  • Longer central hull (10 ft) to minimize pitch poling
  • Raised beam clearance to reduce wave impacts
  • Possibility to lift the center hull rudder
  • Curved foils for more performance and safety
  • Shorter monolithic canting mast (+/- 8%) positioned further aft in the hull
  • Low temperature cured carbon fiber & foam sandwich construction
