Vendée Globe: Maxime Sorel unveils an ultra spectacular decoration of his future monohull with a gigantic dragon (video)


Good surprise from the last edition, the Mayennais is having a new boat built for the 2024 edition. And his choice of decoration is daring…

Tenth in the Vendée Globe 2020, Maxime Sorel announced the good news at the end of May: the construction of a new Imoca for the 2024 edition of the Vendée Globe, which will be open to forty boats. Launched in June at the Multiplast shipyard in Vannes, the construction of this boat close to Charlie Dalin's Apivia, 2nd of the last edition (and which will be bought by Banque Populaire for Clarisse Crémer), is actively continuing, with the emphasis on water being scheduled for next May. And while waiting for this exit from the site, Maxime Sorel unveiled this Thursday a video featuring him with his new monohull V and B - Monbana-Mayenne in synthetic images carrying, like his predecessor, an emblematic dragon.

Keeping the dragon was obvious to all of us

”, detailed Maxime Sorel in a press release which adds “

The breath of the dragon is the strong bond that unites the skipper and his partners to the association Vaincre la Mucoviscidose

”. “

The public and the kids love it. He is a real strength and dynamic for a project that has gained scope (with the arrival of the Monbana chocolate factory in particular). The dragon is also muscular ... This new Imoca will be more demanding, with a demanding mastery. He is able to fly, I have to learn to tame him to go faster on the seas of the world

”adds the blond sailor, recently seen in the premises of François Gabart in Concarneau.

Illustrator Yann Legendre and renowned graphic designer Jean-Baptiste Epron worked together to produce this ultra spectacular boat livery.

We are close to the mythology of the Vikings with the dragon and its coat of arms.

The Vikings were powerful and used the animal to protect them from the sea

”, specifies the first.

Our obsession has been to make an elegant, inspiring and remarkable boat,

” adds the second.

A daring and successful bet… All that remains is to conquer the oceans.
