I'm no tri expert, but that could be a Farrier F24.

Good buy if it is.

Re: can anyone help identify this Tri please?

It looks like someone built a corsair or farrier 24ft, and didnt want to use the folding mechanism. None of the F24s were designed to use ply and none designed to have fixed beams. Its not a lot of money, but really really worry about structural integrity

Here is a C24 to compare.

Re: can anyone help identify this Tri please?

It looks like a Farrier, one of his early designs pre-dating the F- series that were designed to be built in ply. The TrailerTri 720 model would be just about 24 feet long. Farrier's designs are very highly respected here; they are supposed to be very competent sailing boats.

(Farrier Trailertri 720)

They're popular here on Australia's East Coast; they come on the market now and then and I looked at a couple of them (not this one) before I bought my boat. If it's in good nick, it would be a good price. But there's not much room belowdecks. Also, they're big on a trailer and I wouldn't want to trailer-sail one, especially single-handed as the set up and tear down of the rigging would be something of an undertaking.

Hope this helps!

Re: can anyone help identify this Tri please?

In the photos one of the amas is standing upright and it has the correct cut outs in the hull for the beams to fold, I would guess the folding mechanism has been removed for the hull rebuild.

Hi,

Thanks for all the replies, the owner assures me it is not a Farrier design and he has scoured the Internet looking for an answer. This boat has been sailed a lot and has not broken yet, it is being refurbished because of a few rot spots.

Note the rig seems to be a cutter rig! Farrier never did that

House and amas look wrong for a Trailer Tri.

Perhaps someone got the plans and did some altering?

EDIT: posted after ^^^

Re: can anyone help identify this Tri please?

There is some resemblance to a Crowther Buccaneer 24 though they demount rather than fold. Probably someone did do some modifying, a interior picture could help, what sort of board does it have?

Re: can anyone help identify this Tri please?

Hello,
I'v owned a Crowther Buccaneer 24, it is too far form that design. The AMA's are way different.
It might be a Corbett Design, not sure if they made plans for a 24'
2007 Corbett 21 trimaran
It looks a little like the 21

It does but the forward beam attaches in a different location and the main hull where it joins has a wing. Would anyone alter that? For what benefit?

Re: can anyone help identify this Tri please?

I noticed the wide sized hull but still think somebody started with some Bucc 24 plans and went to town. Not hard for someone to say "now I just need more room". The beams and folding remind me of Kendrick. It might be a one off...

Whosever it is, it's a nice looking boat.
Reminds me of the Wavelength 780. (but it's not)
