Oh my! That would be a nice weekender to mess around with on the L.I. Sound. That asking price is very reasonable. Hopefully, it is in good condition.
The deck and cabin roof are balsa cored, and water ingress can be pretty evident either visually or by sounding out (tapping with plastic hammer, back end of screwdriver, etc...)
At that price, this one's worth a look.

No surprise at that price! Wish work hadn't extended me another eight months. Would have been wonderful to camp out on the vineyard with the little cat! I guess if I'm working more I should just buy a bigger catamaran? 😉

The ad has been deleted. How much were they asking for the Hirondelle?

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

Just a curiosity questions...
What will it take to combine 3 monohulls together to make a trimaran?

Pretty much, but how about taking a chain saw to a mono right down the centre line to create a catamaran? Needs the two new sides glassing in but a bit of shutter board and glass should soon have things fixed.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

24ft Hirondelle catamaran sailboat. .project
Hirondelle in FL


And as for making a tri out of 3 boats...well... in SMALLER sizes its really not THAT unreasonable. Plenty of tri's under 23 feet built with beach cats (hobie 16/18/etc) as amas. Although you are better off building your own main hull. Newick Tremolino comes to mind, as the most common. With the right centerboard or daggerboard boat as a main hull, and catamaran hulls as the "outriggers" it won't really be all that bad to sail. Most but not all monohull hull shapes are not good for tri's, too beamy, etc etc. But the point is valid that you're better off going with a known multihull design, both in resale value and for practical reasons. It sounds like you're looking for a shortcut and there are plenty of used boats that will get you on the water faster. You will spend as much money and time as building a full trimaran...and probably end up with something sub par, unfinished, that no one else will even be willing to haul away for free..

Maybe not super cheap, but a good price for a nice cat.
