Environmentally friendly

The Multimono is an environmentally friendly build designed for responsible consumers and involvement in the ECONAV network.

Environmentally friendly build, design and approach:

– An airplane wing design enables the weight of raw materials to be reduced, and therefore the weight towed by car with an average engine (110 hp).
– Lead ballast replaced by liquid ballast (4 x 100 litres) that you don’t have to tow on the road. (automatic filling and emptying).
– The plywood is now sourced from 60% planted forests, managed to FSC standards, as in compliance with the CE standard.
– 100 kg of composite materials only (6 times less than a polyester boat).
– The quality fittings are French-made WICHARD.
– The textiles are woven in Mayenne, France, by Lancelin.   The last manufacturer in France.
– Aluminium tube rigging, untreated, brushed and not anodised, mechanically welded in Retz county near Pornic.
– It is unsinkable thanks to the waterproof compartments. Very high performance foam blocks (15kg per m3) are in part replaced by mineral water bottles with a 400 year lifespan.
– Optimised digital cutting with one of our partners in South Brittany.
– A group of sailboats can be supervised with a 30 hp outboard engine.
– Easy to build yourself thanks to the PUZZLE KIT, that reduces the size of the package so that we can send it around the world.
– 3 ZERO emission modes of propulsion! Rowing, sailing and sculling and a petrol engine for very occasional use, which has much less environmental impact than a battery-powered system.
– Boat on a trailer: no antifouling, no mooring needed.
– Launching without immerging the axle prolongs the life of the trailer.
– Cork and latex-based deck paint.
– Hemp oil used instead of traditional varnish.
– Sails made in Pornic.
– Strong and easy to maintain at a low price.
– 100 year lifespan.

Social, educational, shared:

– Because the first duty of the environment-conscious sailor is to transmit their passion…
– A small versatile boat that is fun to sail with crews of all ages.
– Raises the awareness of the wider public through the “Eco Nautic Challenge”.
– Alternative events, non competitive, not selective, based on the participation of all talents, teamwork, support and sharing.
– Local self-building possible using the kit (lower cost and volume), (learning 10 trades: from naval construction to communication).
– Fun, simple, tolerant, towable and affordable for teaching, from beginners to champions, and building of eco-tourism product.
– A versatile boat (sailing/rowing/motoring) that can be used more often, and be shared.
– Development of co-ownership and the concept of a shared boat.
