Premiers-bords-sous-voile-pour-le-maxi-trimaran-Groupama-3Maxi trimaran Groupama 3 under sails

In accordance with the program and the contract between the Groupama Team and Multiplast, the maxi trimaran Groupama 3 has started her sea trials.

Since her launch June 7, 2006 at Vannes, and during a full month, the maxi multihull remains under the responsibility of the shipyard. After static tests in port, navigation allows to make ones in dynamic.


Mise-a-l-eau-du-maxi-trimaran-Groupama-3-au-chantier-Multiplast-le-7-juin-2006Maxi Groupama trimaran launched

Bang on schedule, the launch of the 105 ft (31.50 m) long maxi trimaran for French skipper Franck Cammas is the 6th maxi-mulithull to have come out of the Multiplast shipyard in Vannes since the year 2000. The yard is world leader in the building of ocean-racing maxi-multihulls.
The unique experience and unrivalled savoir-faire of the Multiplast yard no doubt convinced Groupama 3's sponsors and skipper to commission the Vannes yard to undertake construction. A fine programme of major records and circumnavigations has been scheduled for the boat, events and courses where boats bearing the 'made by Multiplast' mark have an unbeaten record. The yard builds machines that can be relied upon. Gilles Ollier, Director of the Multiplast yard :
