My latest Multihull

Recommended Posts

Built my latest Trimaran back in May,  but only sailed it properly for the first time last week .

I know these boats are outside the normal MYA scope, but they always seen to generate interest when they appear on the water.

I built this "Artelio" design (thanks Jean-Marie Clech for the plan) primarily to try out different foil and rudder configurations and it is not really a practical sailing boat like my last Mini40 Trimaran (Sold that one a while ago)

As usual weight is critical and this weighs in at 1.15 Kg all up and ready to sail,  is 1250mm long with a Marblehead B swing rig, set up as conventional.  Very quick to build with the main hull being little more than a box made from frameless 1.5mm ply.  CF would not be any lighter in this instance.

If you have never experienced foiling then you don't know what you are missing. One moment just poodling along and then it sort of takes off and is across the lake. Too quick to even give much thought to direction.  Instantly "hooked" and I spent the next two hours hurtling back and forth. Not proper sailing I know;  a conventional tri or cat is the next build, but as an intro to really fast sailing takes some beating.
