Classic Cruiser Multis - No age limit

There is another thread that discusses this but has a 20 year age limit - don't get that, there are some great boats older than that still out there and cruising.

To start:

Simpson Liahona Tri
Crowther Super Shockwave
Crowther Windspeed
Seawind 1160

It depends on the substance of the boat. With my perspective onto the world of Trimarans I see very often "old boats".

I may remember here the legendary cruising Trimaran Adagio, built 1969/1970... some photos and vids here.

A Farrier Command 10 Metre, the cruising Trimaran Aussie was built in 1986 and is making his owners (Jim and his wife) very happy who live on this boat.

Even "old racing trimarans" receive a revitalization... normally one would not expect. E.g. legendary Trimaran Geronimo (built in 2001) the Sodebo Team bought in 2013 to compete the Route de Rhum in 2014...

... or take the smily face Trimaran "Happy" which was sailed shortly by famous French skipper Loick Peyron he owns this boat privately. Its a very old one (more than 35 years) but beautiful refitted little Trimaran one can cruise around and have a pleasure-leasure time.

... its the sister boat of Mike Birch's legendary Tri Olympus Photo he won the first Route de Rhum with in 1978 and designed by Walter Greene.

Olympus "killing" much bigger monohulls during 1st Route de Rhum...

Last I like to name a historical boat of the 70th, its a Hydrofoil Joubert Trimaran of 13 metres length, built 1979. As I am informed it is owned by a doctor med. in Beligum, a very powerful boat with rotation mast going easily >20 knots. Some snaps. :-)

Heavenly twins and the Hirondelle. And of course the bobcat.

All small and pretty old designs but still have a following. I have seen Heavenly twins everywhere.

And somehow i like the catfisher 32. Strange beast but a classic.
