has been updated from the original unit shown above.
It has larger amas with reverse bows for even smoother
ride. And a straight tube option is offered as simpler
than the 4 sliding crossarm tubes to get skinny.
This 38’ power trimaran was designed as a “mothership”
for a Texas couple who are avid kayakers. It will allow
them to power out dozens or even hundreds of miles to
the prime kayak cruising areas carrying a full compliment
of the little boats. This tri is a kayak range multiplier.
When the days paddling is done, the galley,
shower, and generous double berths provide a welcome
The main stateroom, all the way aft, has a
big double berth, with lots of ventilation built
in to the space. Forward of the stateroom is
the head space with head, shower, and sink on
the counter. The helm station, raised for good
visibility, is large enough for dining and lounging
for four. Back down forward is a large galley.
Ahead of that is another double berth.
The main hull is built of strip core material
with plywood/core/plywood panels on the topsides,
deck and house areas. The rounded, cored parts
of the flared main hull are sheathed in triaxial
The amas are built of cylinder molded epoxy
The overall beam is 16’-11” (5.16m) but the
amas can be slid in toward the main hull for
marina berthing or trailer storage. The connectives
are the tried and true aluminum mast sections
set in glass sleeves in the hulls. The main
hull is legal trailering width of 8’-6” (2.59m)
6.5 hp will push this tri at hull speed, the specified
twin 15 hp outboards will push it along at over 12
knots. See data on
As a later option, a beachcat rig or two can be added
for a sail assist to the outboards if a favorable
wind comes up.
