CDK Technologies delivers the first mast for INEOS Britannia.

Having already taken on some major technological challenges in the construction of the 38 and 42-metre masts for the maxi trimarans Spindrift II and Banque Populaire IX, CDK Technologies’ teams have rallied together their skills and their cutting-edge tools for the benefit of INEOS Britannia, which is competing in the 37th edition of the America’s Cup. The first spar has been delivered to the British Challenger for their AC75, with a second mast due to be completed by late May.


The Ocean Fifty PLANET R, a ‘turnkey’ project delivered by CDK Technologies

This Monday 19 June, a little less than a year on from the start of construction, the Ocean Fifty PLANET R (CDK-OF-04-2023) designed by the VPLP design office was launched in Lorient, Brittany. The 50-foot trimaran, whose platform, deck hardware and various systems were assembled within the CDK Technologies yard, was delivered as a ‘turnkey’ project to Fabrice Cahierc and his team. Their objective with this brand-new boat is twofold: to perform well in the most prestigious offshore races and help to promote the construction of a carbon-free world.


FOR PEOPLE: CDK Group’s 17th IMOCA and 42nd boat!

Launched this Thursday 16 March, Thomas Ruyant’s FOR PEOPLE (CDK-I(F)17-2023), designed by Antoine Koch and Finot-Conq, is unquestionably one of the most eagerly awaited arrivals on the circuit. The monohull is geared around the Vendée Globe, which the sailor from northern France fully intends to add to his list of accolades, having already won races as prestigious as the Transat Jacques Vabre and the Route du Rhum – Destination Guadeloupe. A 60-footer featuring a series of distinct architectural choices, which notably include a reinforced hull bottom to tackle the Southern Ocean, CDK Group was entrusted with the creation of the platform and the construction of her rudders and foils.
With this latest venture, CDK Group has produced its 4th new IMOCA since the Vendée Globe 2020 and launched its 3rd IMOCA in a year. This equates to its 17th IMOCA in all and its 42nd boat in 39 years of existence!


Wednesday 8 March

Though every day is an opportunity to celebrate women and women’s rights everywhere, this Wednesday 8 March gives us the chance to pay special tribute to them for their actions and their achievements the world over.

At CDK Technologies, they play a key role in developing our projects: in the workshop as laminators, in the design office, in the administrative and financial management hubs, women are a force to be reckoned with and they deserve to be shown to advantage!
