jeanneau announces new monocat boat

FRANCE An innovative new boat concept from Jeanneau was unveiled to the media during the French yard’s annual spring press conference in Cannes. The ‘Sun Loft’ project is a so-called monocot, a variant of a multihull boat. It starts in the bow area as a monohull construction, while its rear end is designed like a catamaran with two hulls.

Briand has designed numerous boats for the French shipyard since 1977, including the first Sun Fast models, most Sun Odyssey family sailboats since 2012 and large blue-water sailing yachts up to the current Jeanneau 64. Jeanneau has not published any details regarding the new…
