With unrivalled sea keeping for a vessel of this size, this one-of-a-kind custom built 13m trimaran is designed to be used as a seriously capable pleasure boat that will maintain its speed in conditions that would keep most other boats at home Initially configured with twin Yanmar inboards, the final product now runs twin Yamaha 350Hp Offshore Series V8 4-Stroke outboards, giving the vessel greater versatility, a smoother ride, with lower maintenance costs; while delivering a greater top end speed in the order of 46 knots.
A seawater ballast tank is fitted in the stem to provide extra inertia to punch the bow through waves in a head sea, or when pumped out, to reduce displacement and fly the bow in a following sea.
Accommodation provides sleeping for 4 adults (6 with a squeeze), a spacious cockpit with seating for 4, saloon with
32” retractable flat panel TV and surround sound stereo, galley incorporating two burner hob, microwave, built in coffee machine, fridge and freezer.
Forward of this is an enclosed bridge with seating for 4 and a spacious shower and head compartment in the bow.
A large volume cockpit storage area is located beneath the deck and two other large storage areas are located within the aft section of each outer hull.
The areas in the outer hulls that were originally occupied by the diesel motors could be converted to two additional berths, or used for storage.
The vessel is constructed from medium tech e-glass, foam and balsa composites utilising carbon fibre where appropriate.
