New Archambault M34 cracked 15 knots in 17-knots of breeze. Bateaux Archambault
The new 'Tour de France à la Voile' one-design racing yacht, the Archambault M34, has been let off its leash.

William Borel, director of 'Tour de France à la Voile' race for which the M34 was commissioned, and skipper Cyrille Legloahec could barely hide their joy.

'The boat gave us a high feeling of power, speed, really smooth and reliable ...'

Sailing downind at 130/140°, in 17 knots of wind, the speedo came easily to 15 knots and more, giving a good idea of her real potential.


The following European events have all welcomed the new M34 class:
Primo Cup - YC Monaco
Spi Ouest France - SN La Trinité
Championnat de France Monotype Habitable - GPEN 2011* - Club Voile Ailée - Ecole Navale
Normandy Sailing Week* - Sirius Evènement
Tour de France à la Voile* - Larivière Organisation
National M34 (à l'étude en octobre à Hyères) - COYCH
Projet de Course Transatlantique - Larivière Organisation

The yacht is Cat 1 capable as well as trailable, making it perfect for Australian conditions. Standard features include a carbon rig, carbon rudder and T-bulb keel, epoxy construction, Volvo 20hp diesel, road trailer and more.

You can be sailing, and trailing, for under $290K.
