Rapid-Construction Multihulls

30' D-30 Trailerable Trimaran

Trailerable cruising trimaran in developed plywood
What if a 30' railerable cruising trimaran could cost a lot less than the heavily marketed folders, and perform even better?  By now, most people have noticed that the folders have to be kept "wide" when moored at a marina.  At one time, and maybe now, the folding components alone cost about as much as a compact car.  Why not build a traditional tube and wire connective tri and give your significant other the new car?

The trimarans in this line are wider overall than the same length folders, lighter, and with much bigger amas.  That means more safety and better performance.

Construction is the rapid CM in plywood epoxy.  The beams are discarded (or new) mast sections, with massive stainless steel wire tension members. 

A deep board and a deep kick-up rudder help it point and maneuver better than most others.
