Re: Thinking Multihull

Thanks, Uncivilized. Nice additions. You still up on the Delta?

Re: Thinking Multihull

You might look at the Seaward 26 or 32. Both are trailerable (obviously the 26 would be easier). Diesel, real head, hot water, retractable keel, etc. Pretty much designed for what you are thinking but with everything there are compromises. Shallow draft, retractable keel and trailerable doesn't really mean it will sail the best.

Re: Thinking Multihull

A Dragonfly will offer a bit more comfort that a Corsair. Either will offer a lot of sailing entertainment and satisfactioin. Hopefully Senor Mechanico will chime in.

Re: Thinking Multihull

I think the Corsair is probably a better choice if you're going to trailer, because of the way it folds. The Dragonfly better folded in a slip. Not sure, but you may have to demount the floats on the Dragonfly to get to legal trailering width.

Re: Thinking Multihull

You might want to look at the Telestar but I think you have conflicting needs.

Anything trailerable is likely not luxurious enough for the wife.

Re: Thinking Multihull

Telstar 28 is not the same as the 26' Telstar mentioned earlier in this thread. I've sailed the 28 often as a daysailer, fun boat, but lacks an onboard shower, and the head is under the vberth. Water tankage limited.
Very easily trailered though. Could set it up in a matter of three to four hours without too much practice.

Sorry-didn't realise this thread was over four years old ...

Re: Thinking Multihull

So, Topfish, now that 5 years passed over the original post, tell us what was your option, if you give up on sailing all the way or decided to have a smaller boat just to sail locally.
