Three years of clocking up the miles and records on the world’s oceans with Maserati VOR70 have been followed by a new triple-hulled sporting chapter. In 2016, Giovanni Soldini and his team are returning to the international racing scene aboard Maserati Multi70, a new-generation MOD70 ocean-going trimaran that flies across the waves at over 40 knots in an effortless marriage of leading-edge technology, blistering performance, reliability and safety.
Stretching 21.2 metres in length and 16.8 in the beam, Maserati Multi70 sports a 29-metre rotating wing mast and displaces 6.3 tons. She also rises up out of the water on her foils and rudders with an unprecedented degree of stability. This reduces her wetted surface area which in turn boosts performance.
Designed by Van Peteghem Lauriot-Prévost (VPLP) and a former member of the Team Gitana racing stable, Maserati Multi70 has been optimised by French designer Guillaume Verdier for the new challenges that lie in store.
Maserati Multi70’s 2016 racing season spans two highlights: the Rolex Middle Sea Race (Malta, October 22) and the RORC Transatlantic Race (Lanzarote, the Canary Islands – Grenada, November 26).
In 2017 Maserati Multi70 arrived second in the ninth edition of the RORC Caribbean 600 Race, after a high speed match race with the American trimaran Phaedo3.
The last racing season event for 2017 saw Maserati Multi70 arriving third on the Transpac Race from Los Angeles to Honolulu, crossing the finish line on July 11th, 2017.
2018 starts with the new record from Hong Kong to London – the current record time is 41 days, 21 hours, 26 minutes and 34 seconds – in January.
Racing, training and time in the yard will all focus on shaking down and optimising the trimaran aboard which experimentation and technological development will go hand-in-glove.
Giovanni Soldini and the Maserati Multi70 team have two stated ambitions for this new adventure: firstly, they will be chasing new sporting challenges to guarantee they continue to raise the technological and performance bar, and secondly, they’ll be using the futuristic 70’ to anticipate innovative solutions that will revolutionise the multihull world.
