Chaudron double up in P1

A new racing outfit will shortly be leaving the Chaudron yard in Fgura, Malta

A new 41ft racing outfit will shortly be leaving the Chaudron boat yard in Fgura, Malta, for a season in the SuperSport Class of the P1 World Offshore Championship. However it will not be crewed by the star Maltese team, owned by Charlie Ciantar, but by a new Italian contender.

Racing in P1 has put an international spotlight upon Team Chaudron, the seamanship and courage of pilots Aaron and Audrienne Ciantar, and competitiveness of the team’s home-built racing craft. The new boat, designed and built at the family’s boat yard, is for racer Angelo Tedeschi and his new team, Project Racing. It represents one of the most ambitious projects undertaken by the Chaudron company which produces around 20 boats a year.

“We have demonstrated the performance and durability of our own Chaudron built-boat that competes in the P1 World Championship and this commission comes as a result of our racing achievements,” explains proprietor Charlie Ciantar.

“We have helped Angelo in the past so he knows that we are very conscientious in everything we do. He has also seen us win races and watched the boat withstand the most arduous conditions, particularly at Cowes last year where we survived a very big incident in rough seas that would have broken many boats in half.”

“Everything related to this boat, including the upholstery, has been built at our yard and we are very proud of our achievements and excited that one of the world’s top powerboat championships will be represented by two Maltese-built Chaudron boats.”
