AKRON is a racing trimaran ORMA 60 built by CDK Technologies in 1988. She is one the best ORMA 60 trimarans every built and one of the few for sale left on the market.

Originally launched as GROUPAMA 1 and renamed HIQ later on, the owner of AKRON AOTON has greatly improved her to make her easier to sail and to manœuvre to get into marinas : he added a more powerful main engine and a bow thruster. AKRON AOTON is now easy to sail shorthanded.

 

The prize list for this trimaran is beyond compare. Under the name GROUPAMA 1, she won the ORMA 60 Championship in 2000, 2001, 2003 & 2004. Under the name HIQ she detains speed records in the Helsinki - Tallin race as well as the Round Tjörn Race. She also secured 1st place in the Round Gotland Race in 2007.
