Lauching of Thomas Coville's Sodebo Ultim' trimaran

At the beginning of 2013, Géronimo, Olivier de Kersauson's old boat, which won the Trophée Jules Verne in 2004, entered a phase of modification in the Multiplast yard located in Vannes (Brittany).


After several months of intense work, the new Sodebo Ultim' has been launched this monday, the 19 th of May in front of the Multiplast boat yard.

Metamorphosis of a giant

In the Multiplast workshops, Géronimo has been turned into an  optimized trimaran able to be sailed singlehanded. First, the weight of the boat was reduced, then a 102 feet central hull was built and a new 115 feet mast was fitted. Furthermore, the beams had to be reinforced  to support the extra load coming from the new foils in the floats.

François Bich and the Multiplast yard are pleased to announce the exciting news that the famed catamaran Orange II will be given a new lease of life.
