  • Coville's New Tri Emerges



    Courseaularge.com delivers the goods!

    Thomas Coville has unveiled its new trimaran, Sodebo the Ultim 3 in Vannes where it's out of the multiplast yard in style to an audience cam to discover the number on Saturday. Thomas Coville had assured: his trimaran would be unlike any other and would be revolutionary. This is the case with the cockpit in front of the mast which gives way to the back to the sea. What will change how to navigate.




    A group of experts, architects, sailors and people of different backgrounds to imagine a different boat. The key to the mass centralization. A reflection that comes from the automotive world and the trimaran with the overhang of the weights forward engendered a virtuous circle to design the platform, appendages and imagine the flying boat tomorrow the better.





    To draw this boat, Renaud Bañuls has also been working with Vincent Lauriot-Prevost, GSEA Design, Hervé Devaux and Martin Fischer. " To imagine a boat like this one, We Did not want it in the hands of one Knowing goal the result of joined work Where everyone can express Themselves. Who says new boat, Said new methods and why not a design team with people I Had coasted to Their expertise. By setting up this Design team, I Knew He Was going to-have me explain to Several People That I Had the taste in the mouth, music, the picture I Had in mind. The transcription of the act is quite disproportionation . There aren't Many acts That measure 32m long and 23 m wide and 34 high! "





    " Having the cockpit before the mast will Dramatically Improve the maneuverability of the ship. The cabin is fully integrated and Resembles an airplane cockpit. This is not a small change and I'm pretty proud.
    We remember in the 50s Were the drivers in the back of Their aircraft. they protected Themselves with small glasses and a leather helmet, it was very romantic. and Then one day, they Realized que la more we Grew on the wings, the more it Answered. it's the Saami with Sodebo Ultim 3 .

    The cockpit Represents 20% of the mass of the boat Was advanced 7 meters from the previous Sodebo and the boat's center of gravity of 1.20 meters. This is what everything else and everything Determined HAS found icts up in harmony.

    In all motor sports, mass centralization is a database of aerodynamics and hydrodynamics.
    At vision, perception, balance and benchmarks, I'll be closer to the bow and spray. But when it circulates in a plane, the closer to the center of gravity, the less is heckled and biased. We will see the first sailing but the goal is more comfortable.

    The concept of control, it is found in the integrated cockpit in the front arm will give a completely different view of how to navigate.
    From the start, the boat is very conservative. We have not wanted to make a flying boat. It will progress as and. "








    A racing yacht off decidedly atypical
    "Bold and ambitious! These Are The Words That best Characterize this new boat. I do not think we are right or wrong purpose we dare to try something different. When we lancé studies to confirm que la idea Was feasible , things are combined together without Compromising. When you ask yourself the question 'why-have we not done this before? "It's a good idea that we've had a good idea, because I've had a lot of ideas, I've gotten to the design team, I 've got my perception, my way, my way to navigate. It's very radical, we have to question in my corner , Navigate,
    I find it very clean boat.When going to tame it and put it in the water, it'll be something to see in its entirety. "


    " We wanted this new boat is clean with fairly taut lines, with lighter decor in color with a white connotation Sodebo ULTIM 2. There Was a real desire Sodebo to add a human dimension it reads in the symbolic. The final look of the boat on which Sodebo printed his leg with these figures and the ampersand is successful. "

    The boat of the program
    it looks dense crewed and solo with 14 beds and 3 world tours.
    • March 14 launching (date to be confirmed depending on the weather)
    • Week of March 18 to 22: static test = dock to tension
    • last week of March: first sailing and sea trials of instrumentation
    and extent of training programs Intensified
