MOONSHOT #1

SHATTERING THE WORLD SAILING SPEED RECORD

Target

BOLDNESS CATALYZES INNOVATION

Syroco’s first performance is to develop a speed craft designed to shatter the sailing speed record.

The bar is set: 150 kph.

Keeping true to Syroco’s pioneering spirit and thirst for discovery, research has already made it possible to question fundamental paradigms in naval architecture. For only research, coupled with excellence in commitment and execution, can make possible the Moonshot Challenges, the pioneering achievements targeted by Syroco.
