Horstmann Trimarans

Thanks to everyone that replied to my previous inquiry regarding Cats and Tris 37ft to 45ft.

Now I have another question. I've seen a few Horstmann tris around at a decent price and while they appear very roomy, I am interested in finding out their sailing characteristics.

They remind me of the multi-hull version of the old Columbia's with their high freeboard and I'm wondering how that affects them both while sailing and at anchor.

If anyone has personal experience with Horstmann's I would love to hear from them

Gary

Gary,

Have you found out any information on the performance / strength of the Horstman Tri's? I have been wondering the same thing but I have found little information on the Horstmans.
Thanks,

Tim

The Tristar (Horstman) 39 was designed to go non-stop around the world. The first one, built by the Casanovas made it most of the way until breaking a fore stay after rounding Cape Horn.

Don't know much about them, but this one has been for sale in Vanuatu for a while.

The owners are in the US I think, so may be hurting a bit by now paying all the fee's.

Contact the yacht club for details if interested
