MALIZIA III – THE NEW YACHT


The new “MALIZIA III”, with which Boris Herrmann will be competing in races in the next years, incorporates data and insight gleaned from the previous model and applies them in a new design. As the Official Technical Partner we are proud to have contributed our decades of expertise to the design and construction of this racing yacht.

For example, we were responsible for the production of the entire deck mould, and our expertise and engineering services also flowed into the further development and construction of the foils, which give the boat its incredible speed. Key structural parts were also made from our CORMASTER® material, which we provided to the shipyard as the official supplier. The new boat is in the direct tradition of our own successful “CONTAINER” racing yachts.  

Thanks to the modern sandwich construction of the hull, the yacht can withstand the extreme forces and weather conditions out on the ocean during circumnavigation, despite its low weight. The yacht is equipped with solar panels and mobile hydro generators which provide energy on board.

Launched as “Gitana 16”, the “Seaexplorer - Yacht Club de Monaco” or “Malizia II” has been sailing since 2018 with Boris Herrmann as skipper on board. In 2020/21, he will compete in the Vendée Globe with her. The new boat, “Malizia III”, will launch in July 2022.

HIGH PERFORMANCE YACHT WITH CORMASTER®


The foils develop an upward force of fifty to sixty kN and can lift almost the entire hull out of the water, thus reducing frictional resistance with the water to a minimum. Top speeds of more than 30 knots can already be achieved at 25 knots wind speed, making the boat one of the fastest in its class.
