Electric racing powerboat

VPLP entered into a very innovative collaboration with the SailGP circuit in 2020. The aim of the project was to study and assess the architecture, design and technical solutions for producing an electric racing boat with full foiling capacity to create a fleet of one-design racing boats.

Maxi Banque Populaire XI

For the design of Maxi Banque Populaire XI, launched in April 2021, VPLP drew inspiration from Banque Populaire IX and in particular her platform, which was a veritable reference for the project.


Launched in 2020 for Fabrice Cahierc and subsequently picked up by Erwan Le Roux, the Ocean Fifty class (formerly the Multi50 class) generated a lot of preliminary work for the firm because she was the first multihull structure to be designed entirely by VPLP.


Description of the project Ciela Village, conceptualised by VPLP Design

Solar Boat

This trimaran (or monohull with stabilizers), which bears a certain resemblance to the Komorebi 138, is the result of a commission by an American owner who wanted a solar-powered cruising boat that is fully autonomous in terms of energy.

Inter Invest

Commissioned for Thibaut Vauchel-Camus, Solidaires en Peloton – ARSEP was designed in a similar spirit to Ciela Village which had been launched a few months beforehand. Under the influence of Franck-Yves Escoffier, who advised the skipper during construction, she was given greater freeboard and higher float beams to increase her suitability for ocean racing.

Komorebi 138

Currently in the preliminary study phase, the Komorebi 138 derives from the Komorebi 282, a concept boat for scientific cruises. VPLP pushed the envelope even further by scaling her down into a luxury yacht for private use.

Banque Populaire IX

Built two years after the first version of Macif 100 and skippered by Armel Le Cléac’h, Banque Populaire IX is much, much more of a foiler than François Gabart’s initial Ultim.

Komorebi 200 – Wingsails Exploration Trimaran

Deriving from the project to build a hybrid cruising catamaran which VPLP unveiled in 2015, this Komorebi 200 is designed to be an exploration ship for the scientific community. The principles are the same: broad spaces which make the most of natural light and ventilation, and which can accommodate up to twenty-four scientists, fifteen crew members and all the devices regularly used in marine research.
