Where Can We Haul Out a 25' Wide Trimaran ?

Looking to do a paint job on a Corinthian 42 X 25, trimaran.
It is in North Carolina now but looking for multihull DYI boatyards in middle or south fla, east coast also, or the st Lucie canal.
I called Indiantown and their travalift can not fit 25 feet beam
And we will be there a month, so the cheaper price the better.
Also we want to provide are own materials,if we can work a deal with the boatyard.
Tom and Diana

Also I don't see how to place this in multihulls catagory.

Many yards also have cranes and marine railways that are not limited by a boats beam. I would do a Google search and start calling around.

You might want to check out Bennett Bros Yachts in Wilmington, NC. They hauled my 23.5' beam cat without problem. They said they could do 25'. I saw other DIY'ers there. Bennett Brothers Yachts

Then there's Thunderbolt Marine just outside Savannah.

I am pretty sure Jarret Bay in Morehead City, NC can do it. There are at least 2 other tri's here. I am a DIY'er hauled out there now. However, I seem to remember the charge being around $35 a foot.

Try Newport Scorpion Marina in Port Canaveral. They just redid their haulout and I believe they can handle your beam. I believe you can do some work but google them and ring 'em up. Good Luck.

Glad I could help. Drop me an e-mail if you end up there and I'll swing by to spill a drink and check your cat.

Yes I have made contact with their yard. they require doing the bottom job with 2 coats., for $1700.00, including haul out and in.
Then we can do all the rest with our own materials.
Looks the best so far, or
Crackerboy marine in Riviera Beach, Fla.
Do all your own work, But buy the materials from them. at ,West Marine prices. I better get a quote from them.

Is a travel lift the best way to haul a trimaran?

A railway would be the best. But most are in shipyards with high $s to haul and block.
I have heard that some plywood tris will stress crack with pressure pushing the amas to the center. If boat is in good structural condition, They will lift no problem.

Wide haul out

In Mazatlan up the estury are two haulouts eith Marine railways, which should be able to take your boat. One is in town where the estuary turns south, and the other is near the power plant on hwy 15. Both cater to large commercial fishing boats, but will haul out recreational craft. Their rates are reasonable. The one near the power plant is a long way from any parts, so you will need a vehicle. The one in town is within long walking distance to just about everything.

In my experience, you can get most everything you need in Mazatlan and PV. In Mazatlan, there is a very helpful friendly guy "Bob's Marine Mart" He is well worth his small markup for his assistance. In PV, Zaragosa has or can get most anything.

The Fonutur yard in Mazatlan will not let you even observe the work being done on your boat let alone do anything yourself. Same with the rediculously expensive yard at La Cruz (when I was there it was empty). Ixtapa and San Blas will let you work yourself, as will the yards up the estuary in Mazatlan.
The Opequimar yard in PV has quite a few sharp practices which make it a lot more expensive than what they initially quote. You can do your own work there, but the layday charge is $80/day if they are not doing the work.

In years past, I used the yard in LaPaz at the beginning of the estuary and was pleased.
