The Gitana fleet
The Gitana fleet evolves with every passing season and the various competitions within them. However, whether they have one, two or three hulls, the Edmond de Rothschild craft all have one thing in common: innovation and excellence. After a brief spell in the monohull and Vendée Globe universe for two seasons, together with the construction and fine-tuning of a latest generation 60-footer equipped with foils, the racing stable founded by Ariane and Benjamin de Rothschild is returning to its first love: the multihull. The Maxi Edmond de Rothschild - christened Gitana 17 – is joining the long Gitana line heralding a new era in the category of large oceanic multihulls. Indeed, with this boat, the team intends to fly around the world.

The legendary boats
The sailboats that form part of Gitana Team, the offshore racing stable founded by Baron Benjamin de Rothschild in 2000, fly the flag of the Edmond de Rothschild Group and perpetuate the legendary maritime tradition initiated by Baron Benjamin de Rothschild’s forebears in 1876 on the shores of Lake Geneva.
