The third iteration of the Irens designed solo record breaking round the world maxi trimarans; the 32m (105ft) SODEBO was built in carbon pre-preg at Boatspeed, Australia for Thomas Colville. The characteristic overhanging bow is 2.5m (8ft) longer than Joyon’s IDEC.
Colville has so far mounted four unsuccessful attempts on IDEC’s 57-day record. His first solo attempt in 2007 ended early after hitting a float object just after setting a new 24-hour solo record of 628.5 nautical miles. On his second in 2009 he encountered difficult conditions which forced him to sail 2000 nautical miles further missing the record by just two days.
