This little Trimaran came about at the request of fellow watertriber Sundance. He liked the idea of a small Hobie Trimaran like the Adventure and Tandem Island but he didn't want to give up the comfort and security of his kayak cockpit with sprayskirt.
The resulting design uses 4mm stitch and glue construction and features an enclosed sea-kayak style cockpit and narrow 21" main hull which set her apart from her plastic competition. With 90 square feet of sail she will be equally as powerful as a Hobie Tandem Island but with a hull that is more easily driven.
In addition the design has folding crossbeams, a kick up rudder and centerboard as well as a skeg for extra trimming options and tracking in large downwind conditions.
Hull number one was cut out at B and B yacht Designs in Vandemere, NC in July of 2013 and is currently under construction in Florida. Sundance is also updating a blog with pictures of the construction. Look for her on the beach in 2014.
