This new multihull was born from the following observations:
The last few editions of the Americas Cup have confirmed the interest in racing at high speed.
Whilst there are many large high performace Multihulls and many small athletic versions – there was no multihull sportboat
The technological developments in high performace sailing over the last 20 years have allowed faster and faster boats to be built with the proven qualities of the offshore prototypes.
Sailing like all other leisure activities needs to evolve
and its practice needs to be un constrained

A condensed list of essential qualities for a good « multi »
- A stiff and rigid platform : The non folding beams gaurantee an uncompromised rigidity accross the beam.
- A highly effective coupling mechanism (cones and sockets) keeping it ultra simple during assembly/disassembly
- Autonomous handling – the overall size of the boat and it’s components permits 100% manual handling. No mechanical assistance is required.
- A balance of forces. A perfectly balanced helm makes the boat lively and seaworthy.
- 2 rudders – on each floater allow you to sail with the central hull out of the water – with a single central daggerboard for performance and saftey.
- Simplicity. A clean deck plan, a minimised sail inventory – only the essential 3 sails (main ,Jib, gennaker).
- The Diam24od inspires confidence to allow you to sail « with your head out of the boat » – to maximize your enjoyment of the speed, slide and glide.
- Functional and well specc’ed Hardware Package : hooking mechanisms for the jib and mainsail, a 16 :1 cunningham, a fast and fine tune on the mainsheet, self tacking jib…
- A rotating Carbon Mast, with spreaders, simple adjustable diamond wires, and sidestays.
