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.
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.
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!
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.
For our first collaboration with the Aquila shipyard, VPLP Design has developed a boat that lives up to the spirit of the existing range, but which also offers a fresh look at the hull shape, the style and the accommodations.
Catch me is the first GP70 cruising catamaran. It was designed by VPLP Design under the expert eye of Patrick Le Quément. Measuring 70 feet, it can accommodate 8 passengers and 2 members of the crew, combining performance and comfort.
Boatbuilders Brava have now launched their very own sailing boat design: the Brava 25.
Aperio – from the Latin “to reveal” – is a ship of two facets. Under sail, she is an outstanding yacht which, upon arrival at her destination, changes into an expansive haven of peace.
Roland “Bilou” Jourdain’s catamaran We Explore is an Outremer 5X modified by Kaïros Environnement, the Outremer shipyard and VPLP Design. The brief was to use as many biomaterials as possible in her construction. In particular, the deck is to date the largest ever component made with flax fibres. All the fibres were sourced in France and woven by the Terre de Lin cooperative based in Normandy. A certain quantity of the foam is from recycled material.
