New Rapido 60 Tri

An interesting boat built by the former people at Corsair. It has demountable or folding akas (it doesn't say which) so it is only 17' wide but it appears that you can only do this for storage or shipping and not at the dock. Built in Vietnam just like Corsair and now Seawind.

Re: New Rapido 60 Tri

It is actually only 4 metres wide when disassembled . It does not fold but is de mountable for shipping . Structurally bullet proof as beams go into tapered sockets with locking bolts . All loads are actually pushing the boat together so no chance of flying apart ! Makes it possible to truck across the U.S. For instance , and reduces sea shipping costs .
