PIRIOU signs with Septième Continent for the building of Jean-Louis Etienne’s future supply sailboat
PIRIOU has just signed with the company SEPTIEME CONTINENT the contract for the building of a 42m sailboat designed to supply the Polar Pod drifting station -an oceanographic platform which will carry out sampling in the circumpolar flow for a three-year period. On a design by VPLP and Olivier Petit, this aluminium vessel will be built by PIRIOU with a delivery expected at the beginning of 2023.
The vessel will be fitted for trade and built as a cargo ship. In addition to wind power, it will be equipped with an IMO TIER III engine to answer the latest environmental standards
