Keenly awaited at the start of the next Transat Jacques-Vabre, on November 7, François Gabart’s new trimaran, SVR-Lazartigue, designed by the MerConcept teams, was christened this Monday in Concarneau by actress Mélanie Laurent.

“It’s wonderful to lean over this cradle,” said the godmother, very committed to respect for the environment, about a boat also carrying the fight against plastic pollution of the oceans. I am impressed by the 150,000 hours of work that went into building this boat and I am proud of the values ​​it carries. I wish my goddaughter to travel as much as possible, to marvel and convey our convictions. “
