help removing centerboard

i am a new owner of a telstar 26' mk2 trimaran that i bought as a project . now i am completely remake it and redesign it , exterior and the interior space . this is intend to be a sail cruiser between adriatic , mediterranean and aegean sea islands , spending 10-15 days abroad for 4 people. the trimaran is 26 feet long and very narrow main hull with retractable centerboard in the pocket... from this point of view there is a lot of interior space sacrificed by the center board ! i am thinking allot to remove completely the centerboard and its trunk ! because i am a new sailor i need as much advices as possible on this problem . how bad it is for my needs to sail without centerboard ? how bad is affected considering the there are 3 slim hulls in the water so i am thinking there shouldn't be much more leeway ... am i right ? am i wrong ?
thanks for looking any help is much appreciated and please excuse my english i am located in romania...
