238 nautical miles at 15 knots with only 1 ton of fuel

OCEAN EAGLE 43 is an ocean patrol trimaran combining a very slender hull with two small floats enabling the required stability.
This combination reduces the fuel expenditure, increases speed and autonomy, while insuring a good level of comfort even in moderate to rough sea conditions.
