IMOCA 60

Seaexplorer – Yacht Club de Monaco

Our racing yacht, Seaexplorer – Yacht Club De Monaco was originally called Malizia – Yacht Club de Monaco.

The name change is due to our new partnership with Kuehne + Nagel which combines with The Yacht Club de Monaco to create a partnership based around sustainability, the ocean and climate change.

The two title partners are represented on the hull and sails along with our other partners, EFG Bank, MSC, CMA and Hapag Lloyd.

A Verdier plan

Seaexplorer – Yacht Club de Monaco is a first generation foiling IMOCA60 built in 2015.

Team Malizia updated her foils in 2016 and a further full update in 2020 with new third generation foils to make her highly competitive. Her purpose is to explore the ocean and compete in big ocean races like the Vendee Globe and The Ocean Race.

She has a mast height of 29m, is 18.28m in length, 5.50m beam and has a 4.50m draught. These boats are built using composite material which is intended to reduce weight whilst also being able to endure extreme weather conditions out in the ocean. With the ability of doing 30 knots in only 22 knots of wind, the foiling system allows her to make full use of all available wind. Upwind she has a sail area between 240 and 330 m2 and downwind between 460 and 620m2.

A responsible approach

We are fully equipped with solar panels and hydro generators to power the boat so we do not use fossil fuels.

We also carry a CO2 ocean sensor onboard to measure ocean data in remote locations.

Seaexplorer – Yacht Club de Monaco moves with the power of the wind and creates energy from the sun with her 1.3kw of custom fitted solar panels supplied by Solbian Solar. She also harnesses the power of the water through two Watt and Sea hydro generators at the stern of the boat that can be raised and lowered depending on your tack. In 2019 we completed 4 trips across the Atlantic without using any fossil fuels, in 2020 we will aim to do the same.
