60' foot monohull Generali. Deck & hull assembled
Building got underway in May 2006 on the IMOCA 60' monohull for the French skipper Yann Elies. Multiplast is building the yacht for Elies' entry in the Vendée Globe 2008. Deck and hull have just been assembled in the yard in Vannes, in southern Brittany.
The major components of Generali's oven-cured Nomex / carbon epoxy sandwich construction are complete. All of the hull's interior structures have been fitted, including the bulwark rails and floor plates which are also made of prepreg. Yann Penfornis is Generali's project manager at Multiplast.
