In 2007, Ivan Griboval introduced us to his project of single-handed around-the-world race in one-designs, financially more affordable than the Vendee Globe. At his request, we designed a 52 feet monohull, with hull shapes very inspired by the IMOCAs we had just designed, a larger coachroof, and lower aspect ratio sails with a wingmast. Unfortunately, the concept doesn't find its audience, and only one boat is launched. After several trips around the world as a scientific research platform, the boat is skippered by Sidney Gavignet in the Route du Rhum 2018, and wins the Rhum Mono class.
