mod70 trimaran price

Following in the wake of the ORMA series , this class of one-design trimarans, initiated in 2006, is the distillation of VPLP’s experience in the design and optimization of multihull racing sailing boats spanning more than fifteen years .

With the same righting moment, longer floats and a shorter mast than the ORMA trimarans, the Multi One Design 70s are designed predominantly for ocean racing with a crew of six.

Studies undertaken by HDS managed to improve the reliability of the construction materials by 25%. In total seven MOD 70s have been built , all from the same mould and at the same yards. They have identical mass to a tolerance of 50 kg, weighing in at 6.3 tonnes.

Launched in 2010, the MOD 70s rapidly proved their considerable reliability , exemplary sea-keeping qualities and potential for speed by crossing the Atlantic, from New York to Brest, in under five days during the 2012 Krys Ocean Race.

Some have been raced solo and double-handed, for instance in the 2013 Transat Jacques Vabre and the 2014 Route du Rhum.

Subsequent to the demise of the MOD 70 circuit, several of them were bought by European and American teams who continue to sail them in various multihull events and ocean-crossing record attempts. Some have been optimized, such as Maserati , skippered by Giovanni Soldini.

One of the fastest racing boats in the world, the Multi One Design (MOD) 70 Trimaran is a versatile high performance yacht. Designed by VPLP the MOD 70s are robust and fast.

VPLP took all the best bits of learnings from the Orma 60 class, tamed them down a little and came out with the MOD 70 which was simple and fast. With curved ‘C’ style daggerboards and canting rigs these boats are both faster and safer than their predecessors. With maximum speeds of up to 40 knots and full ocean racing capabilities, the MOD 70 is a force to be reckoned with. It is a great combination of speed, safety and reliability.

The MOD 70 offers premier racing without the need for a crew of 20. The MOD 70 is equally well suited to MOCRA racing around the cans, sprinting around a 600nm classic offshore course or breaking speed records across the Atlantic.

These high tech carbon fibre machines are amazing yachts and you dont have to own one to be able to experience racing on one. LV Yachting in collaboration with the owner can offer you the ability to charter this phenomenal yacht for an experience day off St Tropez to a regatta in the Mediterranean Maxi Multihull Challenge to a TransAtlantic race to the Caribbean. This type of charter isn’t for anyone but with a team of experienced sailors you can sail at effortless at speed and get the bug for multihull racing.

“In terms of complexity for speed, there isn’t anything else which has such a good ratio as a MOD 70. We’ve been over 40 knots [boatspeed] on them, and with Phaedo we used to sail for up to 200 days a year, all around the world, with just two shore crew. We were sailing offshore with just five people, so you’ve got super high performance for relatively easy upkeep.

“We’d be doing the Caribbean regattas against boats like Comanche , they’d have 20-something people on the rail and we had five, doing circles around them! Then we did all the transatlantic races – for me it’s an amazing boat.

Snowflake racing

Where grit, skill, and tech take to the seas

mod70 trimaran price

From the shores of Silicon Valley to the seas that span the world, Snowflake has brought together the best talent and technology to multihull racing. The Snowflake Racing team comprises more than one hundred years of yacht racing and data analytics experience.

MOD-70, A HISTORY

Multihulls have been part of professional sailing since the 1970s. But in 2009, the design for the MOD70 emerged. Five, 70ft trimarans were later constructed of precise specifications with the intent of them being some of the most efficient, performant, and durable yachts on the open seas. They included smaller sail areas for better safety, and a longer central hull, raised beam clearance, curved foils, and the possibility to lift the center hull rudder for better performance.

SNOWFLAKE PARTNERSHIP

The vessel that is now the Snowflake MOD70 was originally launched in 2010 under different ownership, and has since won or placed in dozens of races spanning six days to just one hour in duration. With Snowflake as a partner, the MOD70 and its crew now benefit from access to world-class computing solutions and analytics that can capture any amount of information related to the yacht’s design and performance: weather, navigation, speed, and many other data points that result in enhancements to the yacht and new strategies for the crew.

WHERE THE SNOW FALLS

Keep track where the team has been, their results, and where they’re heading next on the world racing circuit.

mod70 trimaran price

Snowflake’s team hails from New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States. These champions have built vessels, and have raced many to the finish line.

DATA-DRIVEN SAILING

Using technology to enable and improve the performance of professional athletes and their equipment has been happening for decades. In recent years, data science, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning (ML) continue to deliver some of the biggest impacts to business and professional sports. Snowflake’s Data Cloud helps power those achievements, and will do so for Snowflake Racing.

Data Analysis and Visualization

Single- and multi-vessel sailing simulations, large-scale parallel training, real-time professional & spectator vs. ai bot test trials, ai-based reinforcement learning, get started today.

Her history

mod70 trimaran price

The racing stable’s first boat

The MOD 70 (Multihull One Design) is a 70-foot (21.20 metres) one-design trimaran designed by the VPLP architectural firm in 2006 and launched in 2010. Seven craft were built in all, one of which was for the Spindrift racing stable. On 27 January 2012, boat No.5 of this innovative series was launched in Lorient, south-west Brittany, flying the flag for Spindrift racing. This was the very first boat to be fitted out by the racing stable created by Dona Bertarelli and Yann Guichard a year earlier. Just a month after her launch, the MOD70 Spindrift scored her first bullet in the Krys Ocean Race, a crewed transatlantic race between New York and Brest. That same year, the team led by Yann Guichard took victory in the Multi One Championship.

Within the space of just a few weeks two of the most aggressively campaigned big trimarans had between them broken and re-broken two great ocean racing records no less than four times

The MOD 70 trimaran class has history and form, plenty of both. In total, seven boats have been built, all are still sailing and some are still setting records. Peter Cunningham’s distinctive blue PowerPlay (formerly Concise), and now actively for sale as a turnkey package, is among those that continue to lead the charge, having recently set new records over the Fastnet racecourse and the classic Cowes to St Malo route.

But in a clear indication of just how competitive this unique fleet of oceangoing trimarans continues to be, it took little time for a sistership to up the ante. In the case of the Cowes-St Malo route, it was just minutes before Maserati had broken PowerPlay’s new record after the pair had set out on the same morning from the Solent in a cross-Channel duel.

Cunningham and his crew, led by longtime MOD70 skipper Ned Collier- Wakefield, set an extraordinary pace around the traditional Fastnet racecourse. A month later Maserati did the double and raised the bar even further, beating PowerPlay’s time by over an hour, completing the 605nm-course in a staggering 23 hours, 51 minutes and 16 seconds at an average speed of 24.94kts.

To have held an impressive record across an internationally famous offshore route for such a short period of time was doubtless frustrating for the PowerPlay crew, yet the ongoing rivalry is another reminder as to why the MOD70 continues to be an appealing and reliable inshore and offshore machine. Unlike other designs, the MOD70 hasn’t just kept pace with current developments, but in many cases has led the way.

PowerPlay’s owner Peter Cunningham is not giving up until he hits at least 40 knots on the helm

The world of performance sailing has advanced rapidly over the last decade with speeds accelerating both inshore and offshore. The development of foil technology, driven initially by the big changes in the build-up to the 2013 America’s Cup in San Francisco, saw the 72ft foiling leviathans raise the racing above the water’s surface taking the top speeds with them. Then, the following season, the wing-masted AC45s were up on foils as the Cup looked ahead to another high-speed foiling event.

The technology triggered responses throughout the racing world with foiling finding its way into offshore racing aboard the Ultime class of 32m multihulls as well as the Imoca 60 monohulls. Everyone it seemed wanted to fly.

Meanwhile, the MOD70s appeared to be still operating in displacement mode yet in reality their C-section daggerboards had already been quietly providing foiling assistance, generating vertical lift that was not only increasing the power through additional righting moment but also helping to prevent the bows from burying at speed. While they may not have been seen primarily as foiling boats, the lessons learned aboard the MOD70s, especially in offshore conditions, were being fed back into the system helping to fuel the highspeed revolution.

The original concept of the MOD70 started back in 2009 as a one-design oceanic racer. The aim was to build a boat which would be the standard for the next 10 years. The development of the MOD70 was a collaboration between the VPLP design firm (Vincent Lauriot-Prévost and Marc Van Peteghem) and the Lausanne-based founding company Multi One Design S.A.

The original 10-year goal has clearly been achieved, albeit in a slightly different way as the one-design element has changed and various boats have been modified and tweaked. Yet despite the range of modifications that have taken place aboard some of these boats, the racing remains impressively close when MOD70s line up against each other.

So, what is it that has made these trimarans so enduring while also remaining so quick?

‘I think VPLP, got it right with the original design as they put more emphasis into building a stronger boat compared with the Orma days,’ says skipper Ned Collier-Wakefield. ‘These boats are bulletproof. We can push them hard and they just lap it up. You can set out on a record attempt and smash it across the Atlantic and you tie the boat up at the dock at the end of the day, wash it down and it’s pretty much done.

The intense rivalry between PowerPlay and Argo has resulted in some thrillingly close racing.

‘Plus, I think they’re pretty safe. You can push them really, really hard and yet they’re still quick, amazingly quick. And while we’re all doing little upgrades, they’re generally pretty small ones aside from Maserati’s fully foiling package and even then, there are positives and negatives depending on what kind of racing you’re doing.’

Another interesting feature of the class is that unlike many other grand prix machines, especially ones that are capable of similar speeds, the MOD70s don’t require a large shoreside team to maintain them.

‘Martin Watts has run the boat since we took her on in 2015,’ continues Collier-Wakefield. ‘Essentially it’s been him by himself, plus a couple of young guys helping him occasionally. But there’s not much to it. They’re simple boats and don’t require much in the way of staffing. We deliver with five crew, race offshore with six or seven and inshore we might take a few more big guys to help on the handles,’

Watts is quick to confirm this while describing the maintenance of the big blue beast in even simpler terms. ‘I think of the MOD70 as a TP52 with some bits strapped to the sides,’ he says. ‘When you look at it, the winches are not huge and there’s not masses to service. The winches are the main focus as we do push them pretty hard, especially with the modern high-performance ropes which mean that the loads are up to their maximum. We also service the hydraulics every six months. These rams allow us to cant the rig and so we do change them from time to time but apart from that the maintenance programme is the same as any other boat and simply about managing wear and tear.’

 When a gust hits, the whole boat can skip sideways

But behind the scenes, PowerPlay has something that sets her apart from her sisterships, and that is her owner. Peter Cunningham is a lifelong racer, having raced a wide variety of craft in a number of different locations around the world. But after he sold his business in California he decided that he wanted to take part in some offshore racing and started looking at the MOD70. There is nothing particularly unusual in that, other than he was already in his mid-seventies when he decided to buy PowerPlay. Now, having raced across the Atlantic, competed in the Middle Sea Race and many other events, he was on board for both of the most recent record-breaking runs around the Fastnet and to St Malo. A few weeks later he would celebrate his 80th birthday.

‘It’s a physical boat and you’ve got to be careful when you’re down below, especially at speed,’ he says. ‘Plus, there are some unusual motions especially in breezy conditions when you might lift the leeward daggerboard. This means that rather than heeling over when a gusts hits, you skip sideways which can catch you off guard. So, my rule is always having three points of contact!’

Having come from monohulls, albeit with some quick ones such as a TP52 and a J70, how had he found the experience?

‘It’s exciting, probably more exciting than I thought and at times it makes you afraid, but you do get used to it after a while and when you’re steering from 20ft above the water’s surface at speed it’s just magical.

‘Experiencing flat-out sailing for five or six days non-stop is pretty special too,’ he continues. ‘It’s pretty stressful on all of the crew and while this boat is actually very forgiving, it still highlights the need to really know what you’re doing at a level that is very different to monohull racing. That in itself is very rewarding as you learn a lot about yourself and the importance of how a team needs to work together at this level. Sometimes there are decisions to be made intuitively in a split second that involve everyone, teamwork is crucial, without it you can be in trouble.

‘Seeing this, understanding it and being a part of it has definitely benefitted my sailing in other areas, it helps you put things into perspective, understand how people deal with issues and has improved my manner on other boats. I have learned a great deal.

‘I treat my sailing as a project and after you’ve experienced something like this it’s difficult to think of what kind of project you could move onto, but I do still have at least one goal. ‘My top speed at the helm is 38.9kts, I want to hit 40 and I can’t sell her until I do.’

MOD70: World’s coolest yachts

Reaching full autonomy and zero carbon emission in operation, requires a fine balance and strategic choices in the selection of materials as well as in the implementation of technologies and systems.

Ideal combination of a sailing and a motor yacht, the MODX 70 opens a new era in sustainable yachting.

This Mediterranean race is said to offer one of the most beautiful courses in the world. With a startline at the foot of the fortresses in Malta, participating yachts follow a 606-mile counter-clockwise loop around Sicily. The absolute record for the event (one of the very few that was still held by a monohull) had been set in 2007 by Georges David and his 90-foot Rambler in 47 hours 55 minutes 3 seconds. The existing multihull record dated back to last year: Giovanni Soldini and his Multi70 Maserati managed to complete the course in 56 hours 31 minutes 31 seconds. Now, the MOD70 Argo (USA), skippered by Jason Carroll, has smashed both these previous records: on Sunday 24th October at 20:39:28, she crossed the finish line after only 33 hours 29 minutes 28 seconds.

MOD 70 hydrofoils

Ultra-modern, lighter = better, craftsmanship, mod70 hydrofoils - design.

We produce the Mod70 hydrofoils for the trimarans in this fast, offshore sailing class. Teams Argo Racing and Beau Geste Racing already sail with uptip L-foils designed by Martin Fischer. In cooperation with Andrew MacPherson (Macca) two sets of foils have already been developed and shipped.

We build your new foiling boat!

Material & technology.

Basic material: the foils are made of carbon pre-preg. The Mod70 hydrofoil models are milled from the 3D-file and Autoclave-resistant carbon tooling is made. With our unique ‘one-shot’ production process, we manufacture all our continuous fiber foils under vacuum cured in our Autoclave.

The production method specially developed for this purpose creates a hydrofoil that cures in one go, without glue joints and including internal stiffening ribs. The result is a super-strong hydrofoil that is as light as possible.

The pre-cutting process of laminates is done by our automated pre-preg cutting machine of the brand Zünd . This process ensures excellent product quality and constant product weight.

For the Mod70 hydrofoils, the board up and down facilities in the foils are also fitted.

CHARACTERISTICS MOD70 HYDROFOILS

Length: 3.40 m Foil-tip-length: 1.35 m Width: 0.56 m

The above specifications refer to the daggerboard foils.
