CMN Yacht Maricha 4

Mari-Cha IV

Designed purely for speed, this revolutionary schooner built in carbon composites has rivalled the larger multi hulls in her quest to break records.
Her impressive length of 44.4m (including bowsprit) and 9.5m beam is driven by a massive 1,415sqm of sail area. This gives her an astonishing 22 knots on a reach with just 15 knots of true wind. This impressive performance helped MARI-CHA IV to reach an average speed of 19,5 knots in those days on the record breaking transatlantic trip.
