Meet Sodebo 3!
At the very end of 2016, Tom Covil on a maxi-trimaran Sodebo Ultim passed around the world alone and non-stop for 49 days, 3 hours, 7 minutes and 38 seconds. Now he intends to walk around the “ball” in 40 days!
About 40 days are his own words. Yesterday at the shipyard in Van in western France, Kovil (who will turn 50 in May) presented his new boat to the venerable public – the Sodebo 3 Ultime-32/23 class. It looks like a monster, you see, amazing (one cockpit, carried forward, what it costs!). And after a couple of weeks (the exact number is called – March 14), Sodebo 3 will be launched.
“So far I can’t even imagine what this trimaran is capable of,” said Covil at a short but solemn ceremony. – And, I confess, I'm a little scared. But this is a fear in half with the happy expectation of new speeds! ”
