New boat from the boat builder "Maree Hault", the 6.70.
The shipyards has a funny story: The owner, Serge Calvez, was a furniture maker, a good one, with a passion for sailing.
We decided to make his own boat, a mini racer over the plans of Pierre Rolland. The boat was made and bit by bit he passed from the furniture to boat building with the help of Rolland that was making the drawings. As the building in maritime plywood was more expensive he ended up making fiberglass boats.
He started with the minis racers and then started to use the principle that makes the mini racer the fastest and safest small solo racer to make very small cruisers with offshore capability. I had talked here already about the Django 7.70, that offers for about 50 000 euros a fast mini cruiser with a good cruising interior:
and talked about a French guy, Christophe Mora, that is going to circumnavigate in one and is looking for partners for the different legs. He is going to leave in august. If you are interested:

He is a full line of small racers and cruisers, all very interesting boats, designed by not less interesting designer/racer, Pierre Rolland.

The new boat, the 6.70 will be the smaller, based directly on the mini racer but with a better interior and a lifting keel. A nice looking boat
For the ones that look for an interesting used 36ft fast cruiser, this Rolland design seems great, even if not for the asking price:
