(Actualité) – A new low cost IMOCA

Everyone is already getting excited about the 2020 Vendée Globe, but it is hard to find really good second-hand IMOCA boats at the moment. It is also very expensive to build a brand new hi-tech prototype. That is why the VPLP design team, the CDK yard and Antoine Mermod have got together to come up with an alternative –  a boat built using the mould of Banque Populaire VIII, the winner of the 2016-2017 Vendée Globe. The aim is to supply three boats for the next Vendée Globe. Quentin Lucet, a designer with VPLP and Antoine Mermod, an expert who knows all there is to know about the IMOCA class, as after all he is the current president, tell us more about this new project.
