The Multihull Studio

60' composite trimaran.

The constraints of rapid-building techniques can sometimes make construction-driven multihull design seem constricted. These design offerings from the Multihull Studio spring from "pure" design solutions.

Our CADD (Computer-Aided Design and Drafting) 3D-modeling programs love these organic shapes! High-strength composites work best with the flowing lines and generous corners you find in these designs.

Most of these designs are built with strip-plank core materials and unidirectional fabrics.

Naturally, the 3D CADD program provides builders with full size patterns of everything.
