A 10’ VERY unique trimaran that fits 2 people. I bought it a year ago on a whim and have never sailed it.
I am 6’ and don’t fit very well.
The only think that is not perfect is there are a couple of nibbles on the front of the sail that were there when I bought it.
It is still sailable the way it is.
The outriggers come apart easily, held by 3 stainless steel bolts each.
The total weight of the boat and sailing rig is only about 125 lbs. Main hull is about 100 lbs. She fits, taken apart, in a pickup truck bed or - if kept all rigged-up- on a landscaper's 5x8 trailer.
There are skid runners on her bottom so that she can be easily launched from a beach (or pushed down a ramp) without messing up the hull. There is a wheel built into the front of the main hull so it can easily be wheeled around by one person.
The builder used the sailing rig (rudder, tiller, keel roller, wooden spars and tanbark sails) from a British Seahopper dinghy he owned. The original title for the Seahopper could be used to register this dinghy if you plan to add a motor on the transom. The Seahopper was repurposed into this epoxy/plywood trimaran dinghy. The spars are varnished wood, and the tanbark sails are in very good, crisp condition except the rodent bites which should be easily patched. The rear seat is switchable for port or starboard seating while underway. It has always been stored indoors.
A Tent-Cot (NOT INCLUDED) fits across the width, resting on the outriggers. Many interesting possibilities anchoring off a beach.

You will never find another trimaran like this little unique boat!
