Micromegas 5

Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the privilege to do so, too.
—Voltaire

Emmanuel and Maximilien Berque have unveiled their latest Micromegas: No. 5. Earlier incarnations of Micromegas have all been self designed and built, unballasted small craft for minimalist voyaging, and this one is no different.

M5 is current with the latest thinking on high speed multihulls: hulls are surfboard-like planing surfaces; The central pod provides a firm staying base for the rig, a place to mount the outboard, and a comfortable cockpit from which to helm; The rig features a square top main, roller furling jib and a screecher. Certainly a superbe bateau for their next adventure! Thanks to Proafile reader Creed O. for the submission!

A daring and heretical yarn when published in 1752, Voltaire’s ‘Micromegas’ is the original science fiction short story, and still one of the best.
