PRINCE DE BRETAGNE II is an Ultim Maxi 80 trimaran born from an extrapolation of the Orma 60 trimaran Sodebo skipped by Thomas Coville. 2 other trimarans have also been extrapolised from Orma 60 trimaran: Gitana XI & Tritium.
Lionel Lemonchois who is a former Route du Rhum winner, has skipped PRINCE DE BRETAGNE II since her launching in 2012.
PRINCE DE BRETAGNE II is a 24 m long trimaran with the weight of a 18 m long trimaran. Therefore, she is much more seaworthy specially for single handed races.
Lionel Lemonchois then skipper of Gitana had already the idea to lengthen the XI. But thanked, he must wait several years to implement his plan. When launching a new program with Prince de Bretagne, the choice fell on the largest and therefore the most stable and powerful ORMA trimaran.
