VPLP’s egna ord

VPLP berättar om hur de designade Multi23:an

Hjärnorna bakom designen av Multi23

Fransmännen Marc van Peterghem och Vincent Lauriot Prévost på VPLP, har ritat de mest framgångsrika flerskrovsbåtarna under flera decennier. Allt från de vinnande 60-fots trimaranerna ( Groupama, Géant, Foncia, Sodeb’O etc) till de gigantiska flerskroven som har slagit rekordet över Atlanten och Jorden runt (Groupama & Banque Populaire), till de enormt framgångsrika cruising katamaranerna Lagoon. Och senaste vinnaren av America’s Cup; BMW Oracle. Och även MOD70-klassen-entyps 70-fots trimaraner som både kör långdistans och bankappseglingar – ligger de bakom både som koncept och design. Det finns ingen som har mer erfarenhet från snabba, välseglande och säkra flerskrovsbåtar i världen just nu.

Multi Purpose

Från beställaren: “The Multi 23 based on the most innovative ocean racing60’ trimarans, will fulfill all the young at heart. The large volume of the floats (200%) with a well forward repartition, offers the crew a safe margin to push the boat and sail on one hull in ideal conditions.

The center hull with fine water entries and flat aft section offer minimum resistance to water and an excellent fore and aft stability and maneuverability.
The beams made out carbon, allow us great stiffness that transform the power of the sail into speed and response.
The foils, based on years of racing multihulls development, are both rudder and centerboards pivoting in their case for safety and ease of handling.
A choice of sail plans with a Sport modern high aspect ratio square head mainsail, a furling self tacking jib and an asymmetric spinnaker or a screacher that tacks on the main hull bow, or a more conventional Leisure sail inventory that includes a Dacron mainsail with 2 reefs and a Dacron jib wit 1 reef.

The deck lay out and all the deck gear are designedand chosen to give the helmsman and crew the best control of a powerful boat. Built out of the best techniques using well known and long tested materials, the Multi 23 offers sensational reactivity, performance and places itself as a powerful boat within the competition. The 3 meters long locker forward of the mast and the deep cockpit lockers offers plenty of secured storage.

A tent specially design for the boat transforms the cockpit into a 1.4 m X 2.0 m sleeping area, the forward locker can then become the kid’s cabin…
An environmental-friendly in-board electrical engine can help sailing up rivers or maneuver in harbors.
Light and quickly de-assembled by 2 adults, the Multi 23 at a width of 1.8 m is easily towed behind a medium size car.

The Multi 23 has a lot to offer and for the boat owner delivers the most pleasure money can buy.” 


Det bästa från två världar. Multi23 är en trailerbar trimaran som passar både week-end-seglaren som kappseglaren.
