Solarbri, that one must be in the behemoth class. For me, even if money were no object I would probably not want. It get back to my desire to handle the boat myself. It is the same design as this pictured on the East Coast. I believe it is a Kurt Hughes 63'...
The shots of it hanging from that huge crane really allow me to see how massive of a vessel this is. But that is just me. I like to hear what others think about on these "Ultimate Trimaran Cruising" Boats

The mainsail of my F-31 is 450sqft, I don't think I would want a boat with any single sail larger (heavier)than that. Having said that, a schooner rig makes sense on a cruising boat. Many of the early tris were ketch rigged. Fuller hulls for load carrying limits top speed so might as well break up the rig. Dave

We dinghied around that tri when it was in Poulsbo WA.
You have no idea how huge that thing is until you see it from the water level.
At the time, it was listed for a million.

Here are two candidates of mine for a cruising tri which I could still singlehand, both are one-offs, the first one at 12.88m length ( which has actually sailed around the world) and the second one at 14.02m length:

estarzinger....you and I drink from the same well my friend. I really like the aluminium boat you have now, and it was what I always consider for high lattitutude sailing.

The 50' Tri from Nigel Irens is 46' beam! That puts it in the true "Albatros" class. One big bird! Here are the specs.

Loa
Beam
Draft
Displacement
Main
Solent
Gennaker

15.24m
14m
0.65m-3.5m
4.5t
109sq m
60sq m
111sq m
50ft
46ft
2ft-11ft 5in
9920lbs
1173sq ft
646sq ft
1195sq ft


In Contrast.....this Kurt Hughes is 52' and 38' beam. here are the numbers. Looks like the KH is twice the displacement also. SAils are smaller too. Interesting.

Length overall:53'-2" (16.22 m)Length at waterline:52'-6" (16.0 m)Beam:38'-11" (11.9 m)Draft:2'-2"/9'-7" (.67/2.93 m)Weight:10.738 lb (4.881 kg)Displacement:16.350 lb (7.432 kg)Sail main :796 sqft. (74.0 sqm)blade:330 sqft (30.7 sqm )genoa:656 sqft (60.1 sqft )spinn:1,330 sqft (123.6 sqm )


Trying to copy and paste here has been difficult at best, sorry for the jumbled numbers.

The Newik that is pictured above has these numbers. All are close to 50', and very different in nature.

Jim Antrim designs really fine boats, both Multi and Mono. Maybe we can come up with a rating, kind of like I have seen with dual sport motorcycles. As everyone knows, a dual sport can do it all, both on the road and off. But there is a huge difference in bikes. So they rate them something like 10% onroad 90% offroad. That sort of thing.
This idea came to me when I was looking at Antrim's "cruising" Trimarans. First thing I notice is the boom is attached at deck level in all the drawings.....pretty racy stuff. I would guess below is more of a tube, but I have never seen one. They are real eye catching boats, has anyone seen one out cruising? I would put these at the top of my list if I was doing a singlehand ocean race. So it would initially come in 10% Cruise, 90% Race boats.....this one in the photos looks like a pure bred racer. Look at those lashings to hold the ama's and crossarms together.....love that back to the future marlinespike stuff.

I bet the islanders who found her are having a great time if they are sailing her. Peter was kind enough to allow them to keep her.........i2f

Here is a boat that looks pretty close to the cruiser/racer. It has won most races it has been in, and has been a live aboard. It is built by Gold Coast Yachts. I believe it is a frame and stringer boat. Not sure if it is plywood or what.
At 56' it is long, but beam is "only" 36'. The link has some very good shots that are in PDF so I cannot post them here. I am sure this boat has been seen all over the east side of the US and Caribbean.
You know it sails.......if they can push it around with an outboard on the side....:-)

Perhaps because the Irens is designed for the Open 50 class whereas the Hughes is more of a cruiser than a racer/cruiser.

Jmolan,

The first one "Callisto", an Aldebaran, was designed by Eric Magre.

The second one "Atouva", a Polynesie 45, was designed by Philippe Rivière.
