Re: Horstman Trimaran

The boat's in California Yacht Marina. Are you located in SoCal?

I can show you the boat later this week, say Friday or Saturday.

Hey Thom
Looks like I was a bit slow but am I correct.
The price was $15K?

Yes, $15,000, and a true bargain. Vicissitudes of life dictated my fire sale.

Re: Horstman Trimaran

Now I am firmly convinced that if raining movie stars I would finish with lassie!!
That guy sure got a great buy.
Sorry to hear of your health Thom hope things turn out as well as can be expected.
Would like to stay in touch if you are ok with that as its good to ask someone who clearly knows these boats so well.Reading the forums there are some rather strong opinions on these rather unique boats.
All the best thom

Re: Horstman Trimaran

Sad to have missed this post - looks to be exactly what I'm looking for!

Would love to get your input on buying a similar Horstman, as my research has not been fruitful - seems like they are rarer these days..

Re: Horstman Trimaran

Thank you.

The fellow who bought it should appreciate it. Hope he takes it across an ocean! TriStars are certainly capable vessels and should be sailed long distances in blue water. Ed Horstman really got it right as far as design, comfort, sail-ability and strength.

Re; sharing my thoughts, happy to do so, but right now my wife and I are involved in a horrible lawsuit with some very, very bad actors so we are concentrating on the case.

Please contact me again a a couple months when we hope to have dispensed with this burden.

Cheers,

Thom

Unfortunately, the fellow ran into some personal issues of his own & has Crossroads (Puffin) back up for sale for $32k on CL. Sad I was a bit late to your listing as this looks like the right boat for my journey down to Chile next year, but I can't swallow paying over double for the same boat, different owner

Re: Horstman Trimaran

Vonderlust, thanks for the update! I'm surprised that he is selling so soon.....for so much!

I was going to spend a few more days explaining the boat and take him for a daysail. I'm not so inclined to help him sell the boat within a month to DOUBLE HIS $$, though.

I think if I were you, I may make him a reasonable offer that works well for you, then see if in a few months the boat is still for sail.

I Hope you get the perfect boat. They are out there.

Cheers.

Thom

Re: Horstman Trimaran

Thanks for the advice, Thom!

If he and I can come to a reasonable price in the near future, I'll let you know & see if you're still interested in another daysail with CrossRoads.

Hope all's well & your situation's improving.
