They are the world most famous multihulls designers. I was very impressed by their website. Their design office is made up of twelve qualified architects in two offices Vannes and Paris. The team become famous by designing most of the winning racing multihulls in the World such as Pierre Premier (which became Lakota for Steve Fosset), Fleury Michon XI, the Hydropter, the Trimarans for the movie Waterworld, and lately Groupama II, for the most famous skipper from Eric Tabarly, to Frank Cammas to name but just a few.... As they say "from racing to cruisings"; they have used their racing experiences to design many of the Lagoon cruising catamarans for beneteau, and also custom projects for luxury catamaran above 100 feet. Right now Gemeni, a 145 feet catamaran is being built in aluminium. Aboard this yacht 12 guests can dine in the main dining room, in the cockpit or on the flybridge next to the jacuzzi and sunbathing area. Postprandial relaxation can take place in the main salon or the TV den. On the website you will also find the drawings for the Sailor 164 which can accomodate 12 guests and 10 crew. They have also designed Douce France (138’) the largest catamaran ever built so far. I recommend to check their website, there are many more projects and catamarans launched to discover.
