Thomas Coville skipper of Maxi Trimaran Sodebo

America’s Cup, Sydney-Hobart, Mini-Transat, Orma 60, Imoca 60, Route du Rhum, Transat Jacques Vabre, Figaro, Vendée Globe, Trophée Jules Verne, Volvo Ocean Race, Atlantic crossing solo record, 24 hours solo speed record, 3 solo Round The World attempts, Thomas is ‘’certainly the most complete racing sailor of his generation ‘’ (Edito Voiles & Voiliers Magazine May 2011). 

Many top names from the French offshore multihulls racing world are involved in the design, conception and equipment of the BAÑULS 60. It was therefore logical to associate a great skipper whose experience as a solo sailor is invaluable in sharing with us and advising us on technical choices. 

Thomas Coville adds: “The design brief of the BAÑULS 60 is obviously different than that of a maxi racing multihull but there are some areas such as safety, ease of solo or shorthanded handling where the experience we have accumulated over the years can be valuable to the BAÑULS 60. Technical choices that have been tested and approved during solo circumnavigations belong on board a high performance cruising catamaran.”
