Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

An earlier version Farrier 24ft (720) in West Australia
trimaran Farrier 720 | Sail Boats | Gumtree Australia Canning Area - Canning Vale | 1082139815

And a 680 in Victoria...
Haines Hunter Tramp-Farrier Design Trimaran on Trailer | Sail Boats | Gumtree Australia East Gippsland - Bairnsdale | 1040608126

Anda fibreglass 680 in Noosa, QLD
Trimaran Farrier Haines Hunter tramp | Sail Boats | Gumtree Australia Noosa Area - Marcus Beach | 1082646278

The owner of the latter is dreaming...just like the onwer of the Texas boat.

Considering it has a broken ama on the atarboard side, and from the comments about 'lauing up fibreglass in winter' it implies there are likely to be more structural problems....

Sight unseen I wouldn't give $2K, but it might be worth half what they're asking if the only issue is the busted stb ama, and the rest of the filth is just that, and washes off.

Anyone in Texas able to go have a closer look?

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

And here's another in Victoria.....a 680 'project'
Farrier Trailer TRI18 | Sail Boats | Gumtree Australia South Gippsland - Yanakie | 1083947388

They don't get any cheaper at $2K with a trailer, mast and sails.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

I'm surprised there hasn't been any discussion on the 51 footer. Too much work for the price? I'm unable to purchase anything right now, but I do like it!

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

I started this thread 3 years ago and it's now at page 100 with almost 1500 posts and 233,000 views. I didn't think it would be that popular. And I'm still landlocked in Montana with a bum shoulder. But the hiking is great this year!

I'm skeptical. If it were legit I'd be more than happy to pay that. I went ahead and emailed the guy. Definitely interesting. And a great deal. But if it seems too good to be true...

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

Doubt perm mooring means the dock. 15ft of rainfall per year. Wow

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

That's a completely believable price. I've seen houses all over the US selling in the $30-40K range, assuming the Kia is worth $3-4K, that leaves the Piver costing about $30-40k. Let's assume he values the Piver at $35K and the Kia at $3k, that leaves $40k for the house, which is probably really high for that area. If he values the Piver at $45K, Kia $3K, leaves $30K for the house.

Seems like a good deal, but not unrealistic.

Yeah. Unrealistic isn't outside the realm I suppose. I'm steering away from trimarans anyway though. As far as I know, most tris don't make good use of their space as opposed to cats. I'm sure SOMEbody here will challenge me or "prove" me wrong. But from what I've seen in real life and on the net, I've yet to be impressed...

Still not a shabby deal. And fwiw I've yet to hear back from the ad.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

That's right SkipperMac, catamarans make such good use of their space, most of it is corridors.....

Except for the condominium part on top of the two corridors......

<<wink>>

But in general I agree - for the total volume and square metre-age of a same length tri and cat, the cat will have more 'usable' space.

But it's the trimaran I'd rather sail offshore.

But it does depend on what length you are looking at, for example, smaller trimarans have much more usable space that similar length cats - vis a comparo between a 21ft Farrier and 20ft open bridge deck cat like a racing Nacra or similar, (never mind the one recently sailed round the world by that crazy Frenchman Yvan Bourgnon).

I'd much rather have sailed a Farrier 680 than that open-deck cat of Yvan's on his journey. Man's a masochist. Oh, right, French... Sorry...

Once cats get over 30ft they have seriously usable space in the hulls and the trimaran begins to go backwards in the comparo, unless of course you're sailing a Neel. Having first won Lotto so you can afford one that is!

I tend to think of tris as more stable sailing platforms than monos or cats, and the compromise of the less total space made up for by the usability of the whole boat.

I think which anyone chooses is more down to what they want to do with it, and which is their personal preference based on individual needs/desires.

Despite the extra acreage to paint and anti-foul, I plumped for a tri over a cat largely because the tri's I liked can fold their wings and sit in normal width berths or on a trailer, providing far more options than a bridge-deck cat.

If money was the only criterion I'd have gone with a mono, as they can be had much cheaper than any cat or tri - generally speaking - hence why I'm finding this thread fascinating.

YMMV
