I warm up this thread as I fell shortly over Chamberlin CirroStratus on my own... a miracle of "roomy Tri" for that tiny size...
.... and the Crowther IMPALA
. With nearby 12 meters length and a displacement
of ~3.5 tons.
Hardly there are no informations about this boat to find on the web. It seems some few had been built in the 70th. - Right ? So probably most infos before the times of the Internet
Does anybody here has some more details about the original specifications ? E.g. Sail plan, Floor plan... would be great to see some snaps/scans. Corley noticed in 2012
, that all plans are in the Crowther archive and not for sales. (Rec.:
I dont plan to build an own Trimaran
. Not my thing. I am more curiously about the design itself, and the seaworthyness/performance of this boat.)
Did Crowther sell the plans for self builders, too ? - How many had been built in numbers ?
There is a little video about the Crowther Tri Shaponda
(it seems this boat was for sales couple of years ago). The clip gives a little idea about the interior
design. Very neat cosy boat. There was a discussion in 2010 about this boat in the forum of BoatDesign.net
with the same "thread topic name".
And I understand it right ? There was built a bigger version. In the BoatDesign Forum they had talked about a Crowther 42
... this one. What a beauty.... classical elegant lines.
Is this 42 footer from 1987 a single
built boat ? Regularly a crowther 42 is a Catamaran
as seen on Sailboatdata
Tks in advance for more details.
P.S.: There is a skipper Dave Mitchell
who owns (or owned) one, doing sail charter
. So it seems a very roomy boat.
