Daysailor Multihulls

23' Daysailor Trimaran

A  4-person developed-plywood trimaran.
This trimaran can carry 4 people with gear on speedy day trips.  It can use many available beach-cat rigs. Shown is one with beach-cat hulls as amas also.  The stock amas are larger.  Gear can be put in a protected cuddy or inside the front of the main hull.  It is built with the rapid plywood/epoxy CM construction.

It can be built to get narrow rapidly with the sliding-tube Mono-slip connectives option.

The latest update is done. Larger, longer amas, reverse bows and can have ama rudders.
