The advantage of CFM (Continuous Fiber Composite Printing) technology, which Mambo uses, is primarily that no matrix is required to create the boat.

Parts of the trimaran were printed in Milan and Birmingham (UK), then connected and laminated. The design and printing took only 2 months.
Mambo owes its appearance to the
