Our hull layout is exactly like the Searunner design- center cockpit, double berths forward with a dressing compartment, and aft we have the master suite, nav station, full galley and an aft dinette. We are a family of six, and we are building her to cruise long term. Not sure about weight and performance right now, but I can provide that when we splash her. The constant camber method is very good, but fraught with some technical problems. I can give a bunch of building pics if anyone is interested.

Phantom,

It would be great to see build pics.......

From the little that I have seen in the past you have done some amazing work.

We would love to see more.

Repeat after me: "We want pics, we want pics, we want pics!"

That boat sailed very nicely and we both turned in 210-220 mile days on the crossing from Mexico to French Polynesia. You have to have a lightweight mentality, but it would be hard to find a nicer general-purpose trimaran for cruising.

I think they've mostly swallowed the anchor, and I've heard rumors the boat may be up for sale soon. A good picture and a bit of write-up of their last long cruise in Latitude 38. Such a sweet boat.

Another "thank you" for posting that link.


Sunner was on our list when we were shopping in 2014. Like Sanduril, I prefer tris even though Sue and I bought a cat. Maybe in my next incarnation


Cheers,

Re: The Constant Camber Crowd

Sure, no problem. I have a rather self pandering blog site, but it's a little out of date. Since then, we had twin boys, I took an early retirement, we paid off our house and property and I have been working full time on a two story, 2700 square foot house/shop combination. Life does have a way of getting in the way. But, if anyone is interested, here is the link to my blog. Let me know what you think.https://phantomboatworks.shutterfly.com/. I have more pictures, but I have been remiss in uploading them.

Re: The Constant Camber Crowd

Phantom,

Thanks for posting the pic/blog link. Just as I remember you guys have done a top job. Especially if you consider the size and scope of the project.

It would be fun to raft up with you guys sometime .......?? We plan on bobbing around the Bahamas and Carrib for awhile next winter after we launch and do a shake down.

Not sure if anyone else is interested in more build pictures. If so I could try and drum up a few and attempt to post them here.

Cheers,

SnJ

Maybe we can raft up sometime. That would be fun. My wife and i are looking to buy a tri and our first stop will probably be Florida or the Caribbean.
