Overview

This is the Information Sailors and Prospective Boat Builders Want to Know About Today's Production and Homebuilt Small Trimarans. Imagine being able to sit down with experts for many of the new, most popular, and frequently sought after production or homebuilt small trimarans in the world today. Well, now you can

Are you ready for a behind-the-scenes look at some of your favorite small trimarans? This book includes the following information:

1) Newly published pictures and tips about these super fast, ultra-fun sailboats
2) What small trimaran might be best for you to buy or build
3) The challenges to building your own and (how to overcome them)
4) The purpose behind each featured design
5) What makes each sailboat unique compared to others in the market
6) How fast these boats go
7) How easy (or challenging) they are to sail
8) The biggest benefits associated with each boat
9) Unique insights and stories from designers

There isn't a lot of "technical" information within these pages. Some information might fit into a technical section (if one were included), but there isnt any because that wasn't a goal. It should be fairly easy to go on the Internet and uncover the technical data for any of these boats if you really want it. The simple goal of this particular work was to have those who are most knowledgeable discuss the stories and insights behind the sailboats they personally know -- in some cases, better than anyone else in the world.

The small trimarans featured in this book fall into 2 categories: Production Sailboats (which I also sometimes refer to as "commercial" or "commercially produced" boats) & Self-Built Sailboats. This is really the only "logical" arrangement of order. There is one exception -- the Trinado model. Featured boats include:

The Magnum 18, 21 & 21S Trimarans ...

The Windrider 16, 17 & Rave (Hydrofoil) Trimarans ...

The Weta Beach Trimaran]

The Wa'apa & Tamanu Small Trimaran Sailing Canoes ...

The Fast 17, A18T, A21, Cardiff 21 & Z65 Small Trimarans ...

The Seaclipper 10 & 16 Trimarans ]

The Scarab Small Trimaran Models ...

The Discovery 20 Small Trimaran...

The Warren 23' & 27' Small Trimarans ...

The L7, Multi 23 & Beach Tri 22 Small Trimarans ...

The KH 16', Spitfire 20' & KH 23' Small Trimarans...

The Trinado Trimaran...

The Tremolino Trimaran...

The K24T Small Cabin Cruiser Trimaran]

Plus -- An Interview about Wooden Boatbuilding with Chuck Leinweber (publisher of Duckworks Magazine).

Interviews featuring production models are in the front. And the small trimaran models most often "self-built" at home by a do-it-yourselfer follow. This order of arrangement isn't meant to convey some boats are "better" than others. Such assessment is purely subjective. Itll be shaped most often by what an individual wants in a boat at any given time. In my opinion, all of boats talked about in these pages are fun, fast and desirable.
