Searunner Cruiser

belinda here
this is new to me
we have a 37 searunner trimaran ireland at the moment and heading to basque country in august..been landlubbing for a while now and really looking forward to gettting back onboard with our 4 year old daughter. bin checking out marinas in north spain and looks like they charge double for multihulls! always anchored out in the past but now with the kid thought might be easier for her if we tied up. just thought i d see if theres anyone around this area...highly unlikely i know butcha never know!

The tri is new to you or the forum? My wife was just in Ireland - had a great time. What part of Northern Spain? The searunner series is one of themost underrated boats out there.

Hey Belinda...welcome to the forum, looking forward to seeing some pics of the boat when you get a chance.
I know almost nothing about tri's, but they certainly do pay more for dock space than a comparable length mono.

I love my boat, I can't afford not to!

I have built & cruised three multihulls... Lived aboard for 15 years, and unfortunately spent half of that period working while in marinas. (about a dozen different ones)

Our current 34' tri is 21' wide, & we have found that both dockage & hauling are harder to arrange. Hauling IS more expensive, but for us, dockage is not. We use a "T head" or other side too dock, where we take up no more dock space than a monohull of the same length. Many marinas have an area that is too shallow for monohulls as well. You have to shop around. Mark
