French banking group MACIF announced yesterday that it would stop the program of financial support of the class sailing the Maxi-trimaran Ultim.
As highlighted in an official communiqué, due to the fact that the four-year program, designed for Maxi-trimaran Macif, fully – and successfully – completed. In the future, the banking group intends to focus on supporting other classes of yachts, primarily IMOCA 60 and Figaro Beneteau.
The management of the group MACIF expressed deep gratitude to the skipper françois Gabaret (recall that in 2017 it aboard the Macif trimaran set a world record of a single non-stop circumnavigation – 42 days, 16 hours, 40 minutes and 35 seconds). Particularly noted that the now 37-year-old Envelope a significant proportion of their time given to the training of drivers of the banking group in classes IMOCA 60 and Figaro Beneteau.
Will continue the construction of a new Maxi-trimaran Macif. However to do this will be the company MerConcept created by Dim.macifretiretrimaran
