She is 103′ of lean, mean sailing muscle.

She is the amazing IDEC Sport Trimaran and last week (5 December 2019), she sailed into HCMC, Vietnam which is where we build Rapido Trimarans.

Rapido was lucky enough to have an informal tour of this incredible trimaran (see the Skipper’s Facebook page, Francis Joyon IDEC Trimaran) and above is a short video prepared by Rapido (Note, Rapido Trimarans does not have any official or unofficial relationship with IDEC Sport Trimaran).

Wow! Three knives with a massive sail carving up the world’s oceans! What a weapon!! What a thrill!
