THE FORMER PRINCE OF BRITTANY, A UNIQUE MAXI-TRIMARAN!

Faster & easier to handle

Since her transformation, the boat is composed of three new hulls integrating the latest shape evolutions, as well as DFI Incidences sails. This modification of the hulls has enabled her to reach better speeds and to turn faster in light winds.

A maxi-trimaran of 80 feet

Launched in 2012, the trimaran was born from the extrapolation of a 60-foot platform, an ORMA trimaran, which made her gain 20 feet. It took two years for the designers & builders to come up with a model which could push back the limits of ocean racing!
This trimaran is therefore recent and in almost new condition.

A unique boat

This giant of the seas, combining power, lightness, robustness and comfort, is a true work of modern art. Built entirely in Nomex carbon and 24 meters long, this multi-hull has the weight of an 18-meter boat!

A perfect sailing ship, for professionals and beginners

The Ultim’Emotion 2 is a unique racing boat by her weight-power balance and her 100% hydraulic operation.
It will guarantee you speed, even in light winds thanks to her weight (only 7 tons !); and an outing full of thrills!

As ocean racing is a sport too often reserved for the best sailors,
Antoine Rabaste has decided to create the company Grand Large Emotion in 2010.
We offer you the opportunity to discover & train yourself in this sport by being guided by professional skippers.
You will have the opportunity to steer the trimaran, take an active part in the manoeuvres and sail on the ocean at more than 30 knots!

An ideal outing to learn how to sail a sailboat and to experience the emotion of sailing a maxi-trimaran!

Filled with Emotion

Grand Large Emotion and its crew offer you a breathtaking sporting adventure. Give your loved ones or yourself this exceptional gift. Thrill seekers or sailing enthusiasts will enjoy the ocean racing experience.

Navigate Safely

Our team of qualified skippers, offshore racing professionals, will supervise you, and adapt its support depending on your level. (beginners are welcomed !)

Ideal Sailing conditions

Get on board serenely with Grand Large Emotion. You have nothing to prepare. Everything is provided onboard for your comfort: sailing jackets, overalls, life vests and snacks!

How many people can board the Ultim'Emotion trimaran?

The trimaran is approved for 18 people. However, in order for each “skipper for a day” to steer the trimaran and participate actively in the maneuvers, we generally limit the sessions to 10 people.

I want to offer an outing, how can I proceed?
Our outings are perfect for the first time on a racing boat: an outing on a racing trimaran is ideal for the sail-lover father/husband or for the wife/daughter who enjoys sailing and strong emotions! If you want to offer this outing, you can now book a “gift pass”. This allows the beneficiary to choose an outing date. We will then forward a gift pass, on glazed paper, by mail or email. You can personalize the pass, with a little word of your choice.
Contact us, we will be pleased to guide you!
What do you mean by « Skipper for a day »?

Our outings are not just strolls. These are real initiations to racing navigation, and you are part of the crew for half a day or a day. You will be able to participate in the manoeuvres, sail at more than 30 knots* and take the skipper’s place to steer our Formula 1 of the seas.
*If weather conditions allow.

I'm a beginner in sailing sports. Is a minimum level required?

Anyone can come aboard to live the Emotion: experienced sailor, enthusiast, but also novices. You will be lead by a professional crew, who will take time to explain to you all the safety rules, and who will be attentive to answer all of your questions.

Do I have to participate in the manoeuvres?

There is no obligation to participate.

Can I do the outing with my children?

We accept “mini skippers” from 5 years old.

Who is the master on board?

The professional skipper. For the smooth running of the outing, we ask you to scrupulously respect the instructions that the crew will communicate to you.

Where is the place of embarkation?
Boarding on Ultim ‘Emotion is done at:
  • Sète, the “base d’entrainement du défi Alinghi de l’America’s Cup” and the “plan d’eau des Xtreme 40”. Sailing in Sète has many advantages: 292 days a year of wind above 13 knots and 275 days of sunshine a year.

If you are joining racing events we will provide you with specific information.

I am prone to seasickness. Will I be inconvenienced on a maxi trimaran?

A multi-hull is not very conducive to seasickness, especially if you follow these tips: eat, drink, protect yourself from cold and heat. We advise you to eat properly before boarding. Not too heavy or too fatty but with enough food. It’s also important to drink enough water. Eating and drinking properly are some of the essential elements to prevent seasickness. Bottled water is available on the boat. During full-day cruises, catering will also be offered.

What outfit should I wear?
Bring flexible clothing that gives you freedom of movement and which are not sensitive to water. Also bring light, warm clothing (a jacket, sweater, or fleece). Be aware that even if the weather is very nice you can quickly get a little cold with the speed of the boat and the spray. Depending on the weather conditions, we will equip you with jackets and overalls. However, if you already have this equipment, do not hesitate to take it for more comfort!
Equip yourself with sports shoes or boat shoes (boots in case of bad weather), with non-marking soles (preferably white soles) and which are not sensitive to water. We strongly recommend you to not wear city shoes, heels or sandals. Sunglasses are highly recommended – the reverberation on the sea is very strong! -. Take something to tie them up.
Can I take my camera?

For those who wish to come with a camera, we advise you to put them in a plastic bag (a freezer bag is ideal) in order to protect them as best as possible from humidity and spray.

How can I secure my personal belongings on the boat?

You can store on board, under cover, a bag of reasonable size.

Does the navigation take place in all weathers?

Yes, bad weather is not enough to cancel the trip. If the weather conditions do not guarantee the safety of navigation (too much wind and/or too much sea) or in the case of a total absence of wind, the trip can be cancelled. Cancellation/postponement can occur at the last moment if the situation has deteriorated in an unforeseeable way. We endeavour to inform participants 24 hours in advance in the event of cancellation. We advise you to choose transport tickets and/or hotel nights that can be changed or cancelled.

What happens if an outing is cancelled?

In this case, you can book new release date for free and you will have priority for your choice. Do not hesitate to contact us for the release dates or to view the calendar.

What is included in the package:

  • the delivery of the trimaran to the port of departure
