I'm underway with my plans to live aboard a Farrier (or similar ) 31/32 foot trimaran
I've been a monohull
sailor for many years but these last 20 years I've not sailed, thus I bought an Investigator 563 trailer sailer to get back into sailing as my goal has always been to progress (financially and knowledgeably ) towards living aboard
However, my focus of vessel changed from Monohull
, more specifically trimaran
Hence, I promptly sold the Investigator and got a Farrier TT680 trimaran. I felt I needed tp 'learn' the ropes on a trimaran because of the different dynamics presented in sailing a tri. The Farrier TT680 is my stepping stone to learning
how to sail a trimaran whilst I save funds for a larger trimaran, a Farrier or similar 31/32 footer.
There is only me, so it will be solo sailing so....
I can make faster passages in a Tri as a solo sailor
I don't need huge amounts of living space as a solo sailor
I like the flat sailing of a tri
I like the speed of a tri
I feel confident on a tri because I'm learning
the ropes on a smaller tri
my question is:
Can a Farrier F31 or similar be regarded as a safe ocean going tri ?
I simply cannot afford a 36 Foot Farrier.... Oh, why also a reference to Farrier, as i do not need a folding / trailerable tri, I just need a liveaboard
one. The Farrier tri's are a proven design and a proven boat. Ian Farrier recommends his 36 Footer as being appropriate for water
sailing but I'm thinking his 31 footer will also be ok. Maybe I'll email
