26' cruising trailerable trimaran is designed to be
wide, stable and fast. It has a true double berth on
port side. Construction is the very rapid CM plywood/epoxy.
Of course its not as fast to setup as the F trimarans,
but notice that in the marina they stay in the "out
position" for months or years. For all money you
could save using tube-and-wire connectives, you could
buy a new carbon mainsail like on the one below in the
the many of the plans as shown below are hand drawn,
the actual construction plans have been updated all
along. Notice the recent ama design on the original
prototype below. Even with the old amas, I used to sail
the prototype literally in circles around other trimaran
designs on the same course.
the first 3D model is the 26 migrating into 3D CADD.
Then the later snapshots are a carbon beam version.
The beams are light enough to be lifted off by one person.
Setup should be about an hour. Notice it has much bigger
amas than the same size folder, farther out there, and
with a higher speed shape. It has no seastays.
