I found it. It was in this thread, and it was you who posted about it - I'm rather smitten with it, the Krysalid 42:

I don't know if you have an idea of the costs of one of those new. That is a carbon boat. Some years back the announced price was 415 000 euros for the cruising version that I believe they never made. Probably the racing version, the one that is for sell, was a bit less expensive but not much.

Krysalid'42 trimaran sails for a racing sum of $600,000

If you are not a very rich guy it would make more sense to talk with the NA, buy that used almost new boat for the better price and put him in charge of transforming that on the cruising version. Of course if you want a mew one I am sure the molds are somewhere and the NA can certainly find someone reliable to build it ( in France lots of shipyards specialized in building racing boats).

The NA is Dorvale.

We talked here also about another of his designs, an interesting boat and concept, the Loft 40:

The aim of this boat is not maximum performance, but just having a fast cruiser boat that maximizes space concept, in the interior and on the outside. It is called loft because he uses space as continuum. The maneuverer space of the boat is all on the back. There is a covered space that interconnects with the interior, more precisely with the galley and a cabin that opens to the saloon.

This is a two person boat. A boat that can host a party or receive a considerable number of guests. It is a fun boat that with 6.5T and 90m2 of sail and a gennaker with 80m2 should be a pleasant and fast boat to sail. A boat to enjoy life.
