Re: Beneteau First 51

Thanks Sailor cherry

This is my view as well hence the interest in a Beneteau First 51 from the late eighties. The build quality of these boats just seems higher but I accept you are missing out...

Re: Beneteau First 51

Thanks HyLyte

That was my expectation as well. The 80's First series do generally seem pretty impressively built. Perhaps that other 51 had had a significant 'incident'.

The one I'm looking...

Re: Jeanneau Sun kiss 47 and the Sun Odyssey 47

Ha! Yes normally I would prefer it too but I have a one year old and lots of non sailing drinking mates!

Re: Grp over ply

Thanks Roy.

I'll ask when I speak to the seller. The current owner has been living onboard for the last five years so I'm hoping they've kept on top of maintenance.

Having said that you...

Re: Big, Fast, And Available Trimaran?

Yes it definitely has a space age quality! I think they are an attractive Tri but I accept it is not to everyone's taste.

You can retrofit a wheel. I know someone who has done this on his Condor...

Re: (heavy) overloaded Trimarans... where are the limits ?

The owner of the Newick has all the original plans so I'm sure he would be able to tell you the exact maximum payload as well as the sail area. I know it has a wing mast and newish sails. The boat...

Re: (heavy) overloaded Trimarans... where are the limits ?

Hi Indodream

There is a Newick echo for sale here in HK just in case you still fancy a Newick. It's 36 feet. Not sure I would want to live aboard it for a few months but it might be OK for 1 or...

Re: Fast Tri - advice required

Thanks Harvey. I'll check out Tony's website. I did notice a couple of very fast Graingers for sale in Oz and NZ. They look very impressive.

Re: Fast Tri - advice required

Hi Slainte. Which Newick have you got? Is there anything I should particularly watch out for? The one in HK is an echo 36. I'm sure she's very fast and she certainly looks to be in great condition....

Re: Fast Tri - advice required

Garrobito. Unfortunately the Rapido is way out of budget! Also I'd have nowhere to keep it. Moorings are in pretty short supply here.
