Boat: still looking for the right Tri

Why we love Trimarans ?

Feel free to post spontaneously some photos in this thread, why you love the 3-hull boats ??

Lets start with my own pic.



This snap is from 11th November 2015 when the winner of Multi50 class, the Trimaran FenÍtrťA-Prysmian sailed cross the finish line at 11:59 CET of Transat Jacques Fabre Race 2015, a trans atlantic regatta ~5,400 nautical miles from France to Brazil. - Having started on 25th October with 4 boat classes: Maxi Trimaran Ultim, IMOCA (Open 60), Multi50 and Classical 40.


For me this picture says it all why I love Trimarans... these boats have a kind of sifi (science fiction) look, the tris are filigree, flying over the water like mantas instead sinking into the water like monoholls. The aura of a strong multihull spread out some mysthic energy... and a very own form of elegance.

Yes we all love trimarans once we learn to tolerate the Ama slapping, crashing ,banging jerking motion.

Until we master that we are all missing out.

Re: Why we love Trimarans ?

Trimarans are for sailors
Catamarans are for tourists. 😜

I find cats, practical and utilitarian, even the condos. Tris are far more elegant and extroverted with exceptions to both types of course !

LMAO! This has the possibility of being even more entertaining than multis vs. monos.

you have to keep the boat on speed... Tris are not for people slowing down. Especially for lightest winds you need the right sailing wardrobe on board. A well built Trimaran can go 6 knots at 1 bft wind... as you can see in the video from 02:03 on with the Danish 30 ft. Trimaran Barracuda...

Where do people find this lovely flat water?

How about some video from the real world.

Thats the Island Funen in Baltic Sea... :-) Not only a quiet place, can become very stormy there, too.


A bumpy ride can be of fun, too... isnt ?? :-) Having the right Tri like a Crowther 40 it can be enjoayable

Re: Why we love Trimarans ?

Here's one reason why I love trimarans- and I'd own one of every kind of boat in the world if I could afford it (!):

The racing 60' mono Hugo Boss describing something depressing:


Enjoy,
Lee

After that nightmare we are going through in Europe since 29 hours with the Paris terror that vid made my Sunday.... Tks.

Indeed, its impressive... Trimarans are such efficient boats, not only economically.

The boat we see is Robert Remilton's F-9R WILPARINA II. It was winner in 2000 of the Australian Multihull Offshore Championship (AMOC), winning 3 of 5 races (Source: History ). The boat is for sales at 89 Thousand US dollars / 82,730.00 Euros.

Re: Why we love Trimarans ?

Some of the most beautiful tris come from our brothers in France. Our thoughts are with them, everybody in Europe and anywhere else terrorists raise their heads.
