MODX 70 is an innovative blue-water yacht with eco-friendly credentials for sailing in all weathers. Developed by Ocean Developpement (Marco Simeoni, Franck David, Jean-Marc Normant…), the French yard behind the MOD 70s, the model offers various choices and strong environmental features. The catamaran hull is built with Sicomin’s partially bio-sourced resin Infugreen. Her structure has been lightened as much as possible to reduce weight and facilitate handling.
Fruit of a profound commitment to reducing the impact of human activities on the environment, and of a desire to change our relationship with time, Sailcoop has given it self the mission of reinventing how we travel on the sea by proposing decarbonized solutions for transporting passengers under sail.
The Lagoon 60 catamaran resides between the Lagoon 55 and the SIXTY 5, thus establishing a coherent link between the range’s big boats and Lagoon Yachts.
The Class 30 sailboat, a project launched by the UNCL, now the racing pole of the Yacht Club de France, the RORC in the United Kingdom and the Storm Trysail Club in the United States, to revitalize access to ocean racing, will finally be built by the Jeanneau yard.
A newcomer in the range, the Gunboat 80 is a continuation of the 68 with a deck layout and sail plan worthy of a racing boat, but offering the utmost luxury too. She can sail on one hull thanks to large asymmetric boards and T-foil rudders, while weight-saving was pushed to the extreme to enhance her performance. Indeed, the Gunboat 80 weighs only 28 tonnes!
Paragon illustrates VPLP Design’s quest for excellence. This fast 85’ (26 m) monohull was conceived like a flawless diamond, shaped for its visual perfection and technical performance. This project opens the door to a new era of vessels inspired by maxi sailing boats and foilers, both inshore and offshore.
Réalité is an Ocean Fifty built in the same moulds as Planet Warrior, the latter launched in 2020 and winner of the 2022 Route du Rhum in the livery of Koesio.
Like the 80, the Gunboat 72 is a continuation of the first Gunboat designed by VPLP, the 68, even to the point of being built in the same mould, which was extended amidships for the purpose. The only real (but important) difference is that she is aimed at the cruising market, as can be seen by the addition of a flybridge.
The Outremer 52 is the third collaboration between yacht-builders Outremer and VPLP Design. It has all the brand’s usual features and includes the latest developments from the 55, such as the adjustable helm, the view forward through the saloon, and the helm seat designed for two people.
Looking to develop a fast sailing ship to provide a shipping service between Europe and the USA, French start-up VELA asked VPLP Design to explore the range of possibilities in this fledgling sector of zero-carbon transport of goods by sea. This led to the design of a 65 m schooner-rigged trimaran which can carry 350 tonnes between Nouvelle-Aquitaine (France) and New York in under two weeks, including loading and unloading.
