Cap-Lizard-la-delivranceMultiplast. Sporting prowess across the Atlantic !

What an incredible cavalcade the maxi catamaran Orange II put on across the North Atlantic. Multiplast and the Gilles Ollier Design Team can add another prestigious trophy to their achievements board. They now hold all of the major sailing records possible with the Atlantic record, the round the world record, the greatest distance covered in 24 hours and the Mediterranean.
4 days 8 hours 23 minutes and 54 seconds*, an average speed of 28.02 knots ! Bruno Peyron and his crew of 11 sailed full blast across the Atlantic, relegating another maxi catamaran by the name of PlayStation (38 m) helmed by American Steve Fossett to a time of 9 hours behind. Ever since 2004 it has been evident that both the boat and the crew were up to the challenge, although they did in fact fail in their attempt

Un-run-de-765-millesA 765 miles* 24-hour track !

With that amazing mileage, Bruno Peyron and Orange II went to write a new page of the offshore racing era. They so demonstrate once again the reliability and high performance of that maxi catamaran design by the Gilles Ollier Design Team and built by Multiplast.
Sure, Multiplast and the Gilles Ollier Design Team were still the world 24-hour record holder under sail done in 2004 by Orange II with 706,2 miles. With that new time reference and an average speed of 32 knots, the legend is on. Gilles Ollier: "...Gilles Ollier Design Team and Multiplast are proud to contribute in that dramatic performance done by Bruno Peyron
