Teepee' is a VIA 36 Lifting Centreboard Aluminum Sloop, a seaworthy sailboat ready for another round the world tour or coastal shallow waters and islands.

She is one of the 30 units built by the CMPF Chantiers Maritimes de Paimpol et Fécamp, following Jean Louis Noir design for which he won the "Boat of the Year" design competition in Paris, 1979.

Built with Aluminum AG4 MC, Teepee' has centreboards and a 12mm sole so she can safely and comfortably sail in less than 1m of water or be beached and wait for the next tide.
