Charles Heidseick VIII
This catamaran was a contemporary of Manureva, Elf Aquitaine etc. Revolutionary for its epoch, it provided the groundwork for progress in the difficult, exciting world of foiler design. Unable to benefit from construction techniques in carbon composites, its weight, considered excessive, prevented it from performing as hoped. However, its behaviour fully validated the concept, upon which its successor would make clear improvements. Its development was unfortunately ended suddenly by new rules limiting the dimensions of racing multihulls.
