Custom built, one of a kind, 32' LOA Trimaran. this is an amazing boat, designed and built by a master carpenter in Dewey Beach, DE. Completely revamped this summer to sail down ICW from Delaware to Key West, she is ready to go. She is a twin masted designed sailboat with Polynesian influence. She has a pop-up rudder and a port side sled for an outboard engine. Currently equipped with a 20 HP Honda 4 Stroke engine, willing to negotiate but engine is in pristine condition. She has sailed from DE to FL before using a Mercury 9.9 HP and even pushes along with a Honda 5 HP. She draws 16 inches with daggerboard up and 4 feet with daggerboard down. Great for Florida Keys cruising.

She is built from the inside out with a Douglas Fur strip planked 1/4" panels and lamented with biaxial cloth and epoxy. The backa is built robustly and designed to cut through water with generous rocker which aids in her speed and ability to "surf" waves. The ammas are built in similar fashion, just to a lighter degree. She is a truly balanced boat that loves to track for miles with minimal tiller adjustment.

She has ample deck space with two eight foot trampolines for comfort. We currently have our nine foot dinghy on deck as we travel down ICW. Two front nets to hold anchor and gerry cans but can support a well fed adult male. We also have on deck two stand up paddle boards and a surfboard. There truly is no boat like it when it comes to deck space and storage. Two spacious, vented deck lockers and two spacious lockers inside. Along with storage space in each amma.

Her for mast is a Hobie 18 and a Buckaneer 23 aft mast. She has typically flown with a Hobie 18 sail on fore mast and a Supercat 19 sail on the aft. Both sails have been upgraded with lazy jacks, sail slugs and two sets of reef points with increased reinforcements in summer of 2015. Both masts have altered shroud stay plans and both having redundant mast stays. The aft mast's stays have been updated in February 2016. She comes with the two sails mentioned and a second Hobie 18 main, Hobie 16 main, and a Hobie 16 jib fully batten. She also equipped with a roller furler that can accept a genoa (comes with sale) or a 120 jib (also with sale). She also comes with two asymmetric spinnakers: one being off a Vector racing skiff and the other off a Catalina 22. With a moderate breeze she typical sails between 7-12 knots although she has been clocked with a hand held GPS at 20 knots.

Revamped in the summer of 2015, her electronic system is equipped in the interior with LED lights, a fan, USB charging ports, 12V outlet, 120 watt inverter, volt meter, control panel and two 100 amp hour lead acid batteries. The batteries are charged with a 100 watt solar panel, which has always kept batteries charged. Her exterior is equipped with forward navigation lights, a stern light, LED anchor light and very bright LED deck lights.

For cooking and food storage, we use a Yeti 75 (not included), two-burner propane camping stove and magma stainless steel grill. We put the grill into a fishing rod holder and it works perfectly. Ample amount of space inside to hold over a week worth of non-perishable items.

Do you have any galley facilities or toilet? This is a Wharram design, no?
