    internally, it creates a link within our teams. It takes us in the right direction, as one man, and motivates us to achieve our own goals. "

    "It's 15 years of corporate life and adventures lived with Yves that we have been following since the beginning in Mini 6.50.
    These moments of sharing are always associated with thrills. This represents very well the company and the evolution of the Group. "

    " It's extraordinary ! It's a lot of ambition. I knew Mini 6.50, I had the chance to board the first Ultim,
    there we go even further in the technical challenge and human. Imagine Yves alone aboard such a machine,
    it is very impressive and moving. This will be even more motivating to follow. It's a beautiful image for the Group. It's awesome. "

    Samuel Tual, President of Actual Leader Group: "This is a new stage, a new project that embodies the audacity of our group
    and represents our values: the passionate human, the responsible, the daring.
    This Ultim is of course technical, but it is above all a team and a man who will have to speak about the oceans.
    This boat is an extraordinary record, and it has proven itself. When questions arise about the flying boats, we opted for a compromise, an intermediate boat.
    With this project, we are in a bold step where we will show that a company on a human scale can do very good things in terms of business challenge.
    This boat is finally a real totem. It materializes the bringing together of our two companies, it embodies the promise of the group: build together our work. "

    Jean-Philippe Papin, CEO of Actual Leader Group : "The objective of Actual Leader is to be known and recognized.
    With this Formula 1 of the seas, we have a great tool to push this notoriety, the loyalty of our customers and the
    motivation of our employees. We must have extremely important ambitions. Actual Leader group will compete with
    the top 5 of our profession, Yves will challenge and target the podiums of the races to come. Business development
    is the result of the development of men ... "


    Yves Le Blevec, skipper of the Ultim Actual Leader : "This is a great moment for the whole team. We worked a lot.
    Like all of you, we discover for the first time the boat and its new colors, under the sun. He is really very beautiful!
    Beyond the colors, there was a lot of work, which engaged many different expertise. For each element, each skill,
    everything has been dismantled, reviewed, redesigned, reinstalled. We took the boat to the smallest detail.
    It takes time, energy, skills, but the Actual Leader team is a combination of skills and I am really delighted with
    the great work done by the whole team.
    From today, we move to another dimension, we move from the technical to the maritime and to the competition.
    The hard core of the team will stay. Another team, focused on pure performance, will be formed. We are going to do,
    on the water, the same work of discovery and analysis of the boat that was done ashore this winter. "
