Lionel Lemonchois has chosen the Multiplast Composite Yachts to build a 24 meter (80ft) trimaran yacht Prince de Bretagne 80, hoping to bring off the third consecutive victory in his record of achievements, in the legendary race Route du Rhum. Prince de Bretagne 80 superyacht will be made of Nomex carbon sandwich in female moulds to bring reliability, geometrical conformity and optimisation of the overall weight.
For Multiplast, building this new large multihull yacht will also be an opportunity to try to maintain their “builder title”, following the victory of Franck Cammas on Groupama 3 trimaran yacht in the last race.
Lionel Lemonchois, skipper of the Prince de Bretagne 80 trimaran yacht: “… after 2 records in the Trophée Jules Verne on Multiplast yachts, the decision to work with this team was a logical one. The motivation of our contacts and the reliability of the resources implemented to make this project a success have succeeded in convincing us…”
Vincent Lauriot Prévost, architect for this new yacht: “The Prince de Bretagne Maxi project has filled our team with enthusiasm for 3 reasons: Working with Lionel, with the aim of a triple win in the Rhum, and perpetuating the supremacy of VPLP trimaran plans in the Route du Rhum for the last 6 races, benefiting from Multiplast’s experience as a naval builder, and optimising the architect/builder relationship though the fact that we are neighbours”.
Finally, for Dominique Dubois, president of Multiplast Composite Yachts “Apart from the fact that this construction promises to be fascinating, with a loyal sponsor and a skipper who won’t let anything get by and an architect who masters his subject completely, this new contract is also very important for the company. It will confirm our distribution of business strategy, between industrial parts on the one hand and the production of exceptional yachts on the other…”
The production of the 24m trimaran yacht Prince de Bretagne 80 will begin on 2 November and the launch is planned for September 2012.
