  • Making a 15-tonne 100ft trimaran fly 

Gitana 17 is a new 32m offshore trimaran designed to take on the world and set a new time for a non-stop circumnavigation. She’s big, bold and impressive. But this giant 15-tonne carbon tri is an ambitious project for her creators because Gitana 17 is designed to get up on her foils and fly.
