TRIMARAN “AKRON AOTON”

Our boat "Akron Aoton" is an ORMA 60 Trimaran, one of the fastest and most sophisticated sailing boats on water.

It can reach sustained high speeds that even power boats will struggle to match. Our trimaran was built in France and was originally launched as "Groupama" winning the Orma cup 4 times.
