This project began following a successful collaboration between MARSAUDON COMPOSITES and Francis Joyon for the construction of a performant fast cruising catamaran: Francis Joyon and IDEC (his long time sponsor) decided that the quality of construction and the low cost of infusion
After months of tests and the validation of our construction process with infusion to fit the technical requirements of an off-shore large size racing trimaran, we started this adventure which lasted 18 months before launching.
After a few months sailing, Francis realized the potential and strength of his boat.
Six and a half months after the launch, Francis JOYON and IDEC II beat the Round the World Record single handed with a breathtaking 57 days/13 hours /23minutes/6 seconds!
