Addictive Sailing (previously Blackjack)- TS5

Designed by professional sailors the TS5 combines racing performance with comfort. These boats have made headlines for being among the fastest liveable multihulls in the world, having already recorded 23 knots in 18 knots of wind while reaching and able to cover more than 400nm per day!

Marsaudon is building Blackjack to be as fast as possible, with plenty of features stemming directly from its experience with some of the world’s best racing skippers. The TS5 follows on from the TS42 and TS50 and offers comfortable living space on a sporty chassis. In Les Voiles de St Barths this year the TS42 and TS50 came 1st and 2nd in the multihull class.

Addictive Sailing should be one of the highest performing boats in her class, and is likely to be faster and lighter than both Gunboat and HH catamarans, weighing just 8 tonnes. She has a rotating mast, fully carbon cross structure & fins and NKE instrumentation.

Currently in build in L’Orient, we will keep you updated on her progress over the coming months.
