Performance
All carbon Triple 8 has an enviable race record, notably winner of the SSANZ 2011 Two Handed Coastal Series (multihull) and runner up to a 60' tri in 2010 and 2011 NZ Coastal Classic's. An elder sibling SO50 Rongtdjuuu, earlier won three NZ Coastal Classic's (2001,2003,2005) while based 1250nm away (New Caledonia), testimony to Crowther blue water capabilities and SO50 hulls featuring bulbs in the bows and V section forward giving stability and keeping the bows up under load, along with light weight overall including asymmetric carbon foils and rudders developed in New Zealand.
Triple 8 achieves crewed race speeds to 27 knots and two up cruising comfortably at 12 to 15 in good conditions.
