The work for the launch of the new RM1180 by Fora Marine continues in La Rochelle. This innovative 12-metre RM1180 combines technological wood construction, which has always been the shipyard’s trademark, with fibreglass. A Marc Lombard project, it will arrive in May.

At first glance, it is not clear which is the top and which is the bottom. The RM1180 is in fact an innovative project of a shipyard that already has in its DNA the desire to invent something different from others.

The construction of their boats combines the traditional marine plywood with epoxy resin, a solution that not only makes it unique on the market, but that leads to extremely light and robust hulls. These technique also makes the realization easier (on production numbers not too large) than the traditional one for fiberglass, because it does not use the moulds.

The RM 1180, while remaining faithful to the philosophy of the shipyard that bases its reputation on a whole range of ocean racers/crusisers, is built in marine plywood only for the quickwork, while the deck and deadwork are positioned between fiberglass with the technique of infusion.

The new construction technique comes from the need to comply with the wishes of Marc Lombard, who has designed lines where the inverted bow and above all the flaring of the bulkheads stand out, a super-innovative solution already seen on the latest generation IMOCA.

As you can see in the video below, there is still the possibility of not using the traditional mould for the construction of the hull.
