pirate Hi All

I'm new to the board, and somewhat new to sailing as well. I did own a Solcat some years ago, and I really enjoyed it. I am currently looking for a trimaran that I will live aboard in the new future. I currently live in Dale, Texas and would love to be able to learn more about sailing from a trimaran owner.

Thanks...Jeff

Welcome, Jeff.

There are a bunch of tri owners here on the Forum who can help you out.

In the meantime, here's a handy search tool that you can use to find threads on trimaran-related subjects. Cruisers & Sailing Forum

They are obviously a lot of fun, but space can be very limited for their size, so using one as a liveaboard would not be my first thought.

Aloha Jeff,
Welcome aboard! I had friends who lived aboard Pivers and Cross trimarans in the 80s and they were perfectly comfortable and especially comfortable at a mooring ball or at a dock. I also had a friend who sailed a small Piver across the Pacific 3 times and it was about 30 feet in length. I prefer monohulls but the tris are ok in my point of view. Happy hunting.
Kind regards,
JohnL
