Folding Trimaran Proposal
31' folding trimaran in composite.
31' trimaran design was commissioned by a group who
wanted to see if a better design could be created
to compete with the heavily marketed folders.
I felt the design had to significantly improve on
the existing products. It had to be able to
fold as easily as the heavily marketed ones, look
much better, have a more level ride. Most importantly
it had to be able to improve safety by being wider
and having larger amas.
met all the criterion, but the economics of a saturated
market just were not there. I always like
the look of this design. It would have been
roomier inside due to the ergonomic "double
shuffle" top sides.
