Cargo sailing : launching of the Grain de Sail cargo sailboat


The 22.9-meter aluminum cargo sailboat, built in our shipyard, was launched on the Loire river in early August 2020.


Then, her keel, with its 13.5 tonne bulb, and rigging was installed mid August.


Grain de Sail left the Loire estuary on August 26 to reach Lorient, before going around Brittany and taking place in its home port at Saint-Malo.


Loaded with goods, he will soon begin his long journey to New York then to the Dominican Republic to load cocoa and coffee.


The Grain de Sail will be the first modern cargo sailboat to cross the Atlantic.
