The same performance expectations: reliability, lightness, the surpassing of limits; the same technical problems: absolute strength and durability– tensile and compression strength, resistance to wear-and-tear, corrosion and shock-, metal-composite compatibility; the same human values: high standards, perseverance, endurance, team spirit, the desire to win… So many qualities which are common to the aerospace industry, motor racing and off shore racing.

These very qualities motivated LISI AEROSPACE to take the step in 2001 of supporting Thomas COVILLE in his single-handed, record-breaking ocean adventures on his SODEBO Trimaran.

As a technical partner, LISI AEROSPACE has created a number of critical rigging components and has worked closely on boat preparation before each major attempt. Our teams are currently working with SODEBO and Thomas COVILLE to prepare a new Trimaran, "SODEBO ULTIME", larger and more powerful to reach new records. Next milestones: the Route du Rhum in 2014, in Saint Malo.
