At 40 meters (131 ft), the maxi-trimaran Spindrift 2 is the world’s largest racing trimaran built to date. With the goal of applying the latest technology to improve her performance wherever possible, owners Dona Bertarelli and Yann Guichard selected the advanced coatings of ALEXSEAL®. The racing world is continually in search of the ideal performance balance between weight and speed. ALEXSEAL helped to meet this challenge with our system designed specifically to provide excellent coverage properties with minimal weight and exceptional durability – all without impacting the distinctively rich look of Spindrift Racing’s signature black, white & metallic gold color scheme.
From the application of ALEXSEAL 442 primer to the opulent metallic gold accents, Spindrift 2’s ALEXSEAL product specialist team was comprised of the CDK Shipyard in Lorient France, our French distributor IBA, and ALEXSEAL’s technical sales manager, Serge Baccaini. As Spindrift 2 looks to win world records, ALEXSEAL’s global support team stands ready to rally around their Big Finishes.
