Baptismal nameCHARAL
Construction2018, CDK Technologies - Port La Forêt
Launch date8/20/18


Charal has decided to take a long-term view, as the partnership will last until 2022, including a Vendée Globe, two editions of the Route du Rhum (2018-2022) and as many of the Transat Jacques Vabre (2019-2021).

Ambition also means a new hydrofoil boat, designed by the Beyou Racing design office and the VPLP architectural firm, and built by CDK Technologies, for launch in August 2018. It is a project that is both technologically avant-garde and ambitious in terms of sports, with a significant human element. It was essential for the team to think bigger in order to claim victory in the 2020 Vendée Globe and this new boat is able to achieve its ambitions.
