The new 143 ft MariCha 1V, for owner Mr Miller, has been launched recently in France. The design brief for the yacht was for the fastest mono hull in the world. Greg Elliott playing a major role in the design of the "Mari Cha 1V", over the past 4 years, has just returned from sea trials including a West- East Atlantic crossing. Elliott says the sea trials to date have shown the boat is extremely fast and has enormous potential. An attempt to set a new East - West Atlantic crossing record, from New York to England, will take place sometime in October.
