The Arkema Multi50 trimaran, built for performance
This formula 1 of the oceans is not just any trimaran. The Arkema Multi50 is the result of a great combination of Arkema’s competences and the experience of Team Lalou Multi.
Before the Arkema trimaran could race on the oceans, it had to be imagined, designed and created. So, Group researchers worked closely for several months with Lalou Roucayrol and Romaric Neyhousser, a renowned architect in the world of competition sailing.
With the Arkema Multi50, Romaric Neyhousser built his first racing boat. Fast, elegant and strong, today it is one of the real benchmarks on the Multi50 circuit.
The Arkema Multi50 trimaran, a machine dedicated to winning
The concrete embodiment of the know-how of Arkema’s teams in terms of innovation, the Arkema Multi50 trimaran, designed for performance, is an "ever evolving laboratory".
New technologies are regularly fitted on the boat. Arkema materials such as Bostik adhesives or the Altuglas® ShieldUp acrylic glass contribute to illustrating Arkema’s commitment to reducing the weight of materials and achieving performance.
The Multi50 makes its comeback
Following a five-month refit for innovation and performance enhancements, the trimaran went back in the water in Verdon-sur-Mer (France) on 25 April. Sporting a new livery, fitted with new rudders and one of its foils, the Arkema trimaran is ready for the 2017 season!
