Well, I guess that we all have our own standards as to what is fun and "not fun as a live aboard boat... for longer time"

But if you go to Chris whites website and look at the interior accommodations of the Hammerhead 54, you might change your opinion

Plus the Hammerhead 54 will outsail all but the bigger racing catamarans

Only 3 Hammerhead 54s have been built, and don't come up for sail all that often; so if you're in a hurry to buy a boat, I wouldn't hold my breath. They are truly beautiful boats

However you can buy this little feller in Lahaina today, and cruise Europe in REAL style

Very nice, and with a very nice interior. I have seen pics on the hammerhead and the interior is nice but as you say 3 built. Not easy to find one of these for sale. And the pricetag is probably like this one.

The Hammerhead is bigger and better atleast at pics than the Contour 50.

Outsail...yes....but probably not cheap.

Re: Trimaran Contour 50, Nootka 50 or Hammerhead 54?

And what do you think about the French Challenge 42? (if I remember, three double cabins and two heads in a 8000 lbs folding trimaran)

Why not just go with a performance cat to begin with? Jumping from boat to boat can leave you with 2, or with oone you can't get rid of quick enough.......i2f

Re: Trimaran Contour 50, Nootka 50 or Hammerhead 54?

If anyone is still reading this thread, because it does pop up on searches...My 2 cents
Contour made some very good Tri's. Their best ever was the 50 but economics hit the company hard. The 50 was still more of a racer than a cruiser but that is an easy fix. The boats are stable and very fast even dressed out for cruising and blue water.
Parts? REALLY Can't find them? They used everything used in other boats so that is sillyness.
