Thrill seekers apply within.......


The aim was to build a boat which would be the standard for the next ten years (2010-2020); a one-design 70ft trimaran conforming to very precise specifications with the focus on being modern, efficient, safe and durable. The development of the concept of the MOD70 was a collaboration with the VPLP design firm (Vincent Lauriot-Prévost / Marc Van Peteghem). A strict quota of 12 boats was set at the beginning of the project, with a maximum of four per nation, to encourage the internationalization of the class.

With the MOD70 firmly geared towards oceanic navigation, each boat can install innovative communication systems for ‘live’ tracking and a full range of information about the races, which can then be made available on all multimedia platforms.

At the end of 2011, seven teams were involved:

Very soon, some renowned skippers became involved in the class. The pioneers were Michel Desjoyeaux and his boat owner Foncia, who from January 2010 announced their return to the multihull arena and their participation in the Multi One Championship. Since then other teams have arrived:

January 2010: Michel Desjoyeaux / Foncia
October 2010: Roland Jourdain / Veolia Environnement
August 2011: Sidney Gavignet / Oman Sail
September 2011: Yann Guichard / Spindrift racing
Jan 2012: Jean-Pierre Dick / Paprec-Virbac - NOW CONCISE 10

By the end of 2012, seven teams representing 3 nations had committed to the MOD70 circuit and it was no looking back from there.

This latest generation of absolutely identical trimarans aims to combine modernity and performance, safety, reliability and cost control.
Measuring over 10 feet in length (21.20 metres instead of 18.28 metres), the MOD 70s are less beamy than their ORMA ancestors, the latter reaching 18 metres.
Seven specific features, which favour safety and reliability, whilst guaranteeing performance, can be noted:

1) Smaller sail area (5%) providing more safety when ocean sailing 2
2) Longer central hull (10 ft) to minimise pitchpoling 3
3) Raised beam clearance to reduce wave impacts 4
4) Possibility to lift the centre hull rudder
5) Curved foils for more performance and safety 6
6) Shorter monolithic canting mast (+/- 8%) positioned further aft in the hull 7
7) Low temperature cured carbon fibre & foam sandwich construction
