atypical cruises on orc57

Our racer-cruiser high-performance catamaran "Avel Vaez" promises great sailing moments

The ORC57 #3 catamaran, one of the most powerful catamarans ever built

Come aboard ORC57 number 3, delivered by ORC Catamarans in early 2024! 

The name Avel Vaez, which means "Offshore Wind" in Breton language, was not chosen by chance: the third ORC57 is a lightweight, high-performance catamaran, capable of sailing in all weathers. Often sailing faster than the wind!

client feedback

"The yacht is really extraordinary, very fast, particularly well equipped. Life on board is very comfortable: two bathrooms, always hot water, two fridges and a freezer, four large cabins... There's really a lot of space.

Christian, the skipper, is very friendly and competent. I always felt safe, even though it was quite windy at times.

 I'll definitely be sailing this catamaran again! Thanks to the crew and to Avel-Marine, who initiated this great project. "

Éric, Avel Vaez passenger between La Grande-Motte (France) and Athens (Greece)
