It was built at the Boatspeed facility in Somersby, NSW, Australia as was B&Q Castorama and the sister ship the Iren's designed Sodebo. http://www.mysailing.com.au/news/racing-multihulls

Nigel Irens like I said was correct, Oman Air is correct as well... but what it really is, is Thomas Coville's old boat, the Pizza Express: https://youtu.be/JjtZ9PHfQBc

You are thinking of the former Sodebo Maxi that was sold to Yves Le Blevec and Group Actual.

Last year Yves went for a Wrong-Way RTW record but his trimaran Team Actual Ultim broke up and was lost in the Southern Ocean just south of Cape Horn last December.

Since that time, Le Blevec and Group Actual have purchased the current Sodebo Ultim. I believe they take possession of the boat after the next Route du Rhum this fall.

The trimaran in the OP's photo is Oman Air that broke up during the 2012 Route du Rhum, and has been in storage ever since.

No, that's not the boat, I've added a link to YouTube: https://youtu.be/JjtZ9PHfQBc this is what the boat looked like originally, it was commissioned by Thomas Coville for single handed round the world racing and launched as Sodebo.

The boat in your video is Sodebo Maxi and sailed by Thomas Coville. Sodebo sold that boat to Team Actual, skipper Yves Le Blevec.

Here is a link will provide you with info on the history of Sodebo Maxi
