Past projects for Vendée Globe 2004. They are dated 2003. Maybe you will notice interesting details..... Mk-I project with strong cost constraints for construction and maintenance --> hard chine hull shape, medium power, and possibility to use the ship for cruise after pure racing period. Mk-II project with no financial restiction at all for the study --> wide, powerfull, canting keel, twin rudders, and original arrangement for the cockpit. They look a little bit superseeded today, but 4 years ago they could have been on the edge, especially Mk-II project.
