Rapid-Construction Multihulls

32' D-32 Trailerable Trimaran

32' trailerable cruising trimaran, in developed plywood and composite.
This demountable 32' trimaran can be built in developed plywood or composite materials.  Even if built with ply/epoxy, it uses core materials to make the large panels stiff.  It is a smaller derivation of the similar 38 tirmaran.

This tri has full standing headroom down below.  It also has a pass-through gets one crawl back into the aft cabin without having to open a hatch on top.

The connectives are the old stand-by of aluminum tubes and stainless steel wire.  That speeds up construction considerably.  The tubes can be one piece, or a pair front and back, to slide past one another.  That lets the tri get skinny in a marina.  Unlike a folder, it can be kept that way on the water.

Notice that this tri has the usual KHSD features to make it perform and maneuver; a deep board, big rudder,  big amas way out there, and top notch sail  handling arrangements. 

From the side it does look a bit like a freighter, but it packs a lot of features into a small boat.  Many plan sets have been sold of this design.
