trimaran-olivier-de-kersauzonLaunching of Olivier de Kersauson's trimaran

With the new 34 m maxi trimaran for French skipper Olivier de Kersauson, this will be the fourth composite racing yacht of more than 33 metres that Multiplast has launched in some 27 months (after the catamarans for The Race).
This new 34 m trimaran needed 12 months to build between July 2000 and July 2001 by the 50 employees of Multiplast, or more than 100,000 man hours when you include the equipment suppliers..Today, the trimaran is completely assembled. The final tasks before leaving the building hall at the end of July are the fitting of the deck gear, putting the finishing touches to the accommodations, finalising the bonding of the forward structures, finishing the mast and painting.

The Race: Rendezvous of the Giants! After 5 years on the drawing board and testing the concept of a generic boat, the Gilles Ollier Design Team and Multiplast pulled off their gamble by having three giant catamarans line up in The Race. After 62 days, 56 minutes and 33 seconds of racing, Club Med, the first of the three sister ships, reached Marseilles in the lead, followed on the podium by Innovation Explorer second and Team Adventure 3rd.
Reliability! Such was the design office's and the boatyard's permanent leitmotif throughout the entire duration of the saga of The Race, from the design to the construction. "My greatest satisfaction was seeing all the sailors come back safe and sound", confided Yann Penfornis.

club-med-record-traverseClub Med. 625 miles in 24 hours !!!


Less than 1 month after launching, the maxi-catamaran Club Med designed by the Gilles Ollier Design Team and built by Multiplast, has beaten the world record for the greatest distanced sailed in 24 hours.
In qualification for The Race on the East / West Atlantic course between Cadiz (Spain) and San Salvador (Bahamas/Usa), Club Med is the first yacht to break the 600 miles in 24 hours barrier, exactly 625.7 miles (1158 km). On starboard tack, the giant multihull was sailing apparent wind abeam with full main (or single reef) and solent jib. The wind was oscillating between 23 and 27 knots. On deck, a minimum of 8 people on watch (out of 14 on board) was requisitioned, all with sheets in hand.
