Brigitte Bardot, the record-breaking super-tech trimaran around the world is for sale. If you are looking for a boat to “get away from it all” and tour far and wide, this may be for you. This trimaran is 33 meters long, 14 meters wide and has a respectable pedigree.
The Brigitte Bardot trimaran built precisely for the purpose of setting a new record has appeared on the Fraser Yachts website: a round-the-world trip in less than 80 days. He succeeded now 22 years ago, when in July 1998 he set the record by taking 74 days 20 hours and 58 minutes.
Brigitte Bardot, trimaran for sale
Her name when she set the record in 1998 was not that of the famous French actress, but rather Cable and Wireless Adventure. The boat has then been used since 2010 by Sea Shepherd, the international owner organization dedicated to safeguarding ocean environments, and world famous for its sometimes extreme actions to protect cetaceans from illegal actions. Brigitte Bardot is a tribute to the actress, who is both a supporter of the movement and a member of Sea Shepherd ‘s Council of Wise Men.
A boat accustomed to long sailing, just think that when it set the record in 74 days, it covered about 22,600 nautical miles, or over 41,800 kilometers.
