The Finot-Conq designed for the British Alex Thomson and launched in 2007, was the first yacht to broke the world monohull distance record, sailing 501 miles in 24 hours.

The Finot designed for the British Alex Thomson and launched in 2007, was the first yacht to broke the world monohull distance record, sailing 501 miles in 24 hours. The boat has been optimised for the Route du Rhum-Destination Guadeloupe. It is equipped with a new mast signed Lorima and a drastic weight hunt has been carried out. The result: a total weight reduction of 690 kg! It is on board the boat with which he took part in the 2016 Vendée Globe that Stéphane Le Diraison is embarking on this new three-year IMOCA campaign.
