IMOCA 60

Malizia II

Malizia symbolises the Grimaldi family’s deep attachment to the sea in this tribute to Francesco Grimaldi, a Genovese who arrived by sea in 1297 and founded the Grimaldi family dynasty. He was nicknamed La Malizia in the Monegasque language, meaning “the wily one”. For the Monegasque skipper the name has a special meaning: “Given what Malizia represents for us in the Principality of Monaco, I’ve always wanted to give this name to a race boat.”

A Verdier plan

Belonging to the IMOCA class, the Mono60 Malizia II was launched in August 2015 after a year-long build at the Multiplast yard. This Verdier design with her planing forms is a latest generation 60-foot monohull designed for Gitana Team and his skipper Sébastien Josse, with a view to the Vendée Globe 2016 – 2017. Adhering to the new class measurement in force in the IMOCA class since December 2013, the Mono60 Malizia II will be equipped with a one-design keel and mast (identical materials, forms and suppliers).

Planing hull equipped with a very high volume bow to enhance the boat’s speed performance, a so-called tumblehome hull shape (meaning that the beam at the sheer is less than the maximum beam of the hull) so as to limit the beam of the deck and thus make her more lightweight, reduction of the freeboard, which further accentuates the sensation of the boat’s beaminess, a flat deck and open cockpit, not to mention foils instead of the old generation conventional daggerboards… Malizia II certainly doesn’t lack character.
