Are you looking for a lakeside sailing toy for the holiday home? We have just landed this Haines Hunter Tramp fiberglass sailing tri hull also known as Trailer Tri. Built for fun, stability and a little speed thrown into the mix, these sensational boats were made through the eighties by Haines Hunter. They were designed by Ian Farrier as a day sailor that can carry up to 6 adults and offer tremendous stability with a beam of 14'9" when the outriggers are spread and were also known as an Eagle when sold in America.
The boat has a small Mariner 4Hp 2 stroke fitted within the rear of the centre hull and fuelled via a portable 12l fuel tank. She's an oldie, but in reality, the motors are used simply to get in and out of the harbour / boat ramp area or if the wind drops out.
The cockpit is generous in size, with padded seating and all ropes and the tiller all within arm's reach. With a beam of approx. 4.5m with the side sponsons outreached, stability is assured and you could even enjoy a coffee without spillage! There are two mains and two jibs one of each original and the other two are in very good workable condition. A screecher is also on board for those seeking some thrills on the downwind run!
With the view of preserving a lot of information on the Haines Hunter Tramp, JCM has archived on our Trailer Sailor library found on our webpage. Also depending on what site you are looking at this boat through, we have attached a PDF of some of the original marketing material for your reference.
