This beautiful yacht is a credit to her one owner/builder. She was built on Magnetic Island and launched in 2010. Read on to hear the owners journey building and sailing this beautiful trimaran.

"After cruising sailing in both mono's and multi's cat's and tri's, my preference for comfort, safety speed and sea motion, the trimaran was my obvious choice for a vessel under 15m. The design evolved over 20 years of dreaming, and the final result is a combination of the Cross 42, the Crowther Spindrift and Schionning designs. Being a design draftsman in the engineering industry, l had the skills to develop my design comprehensively on computer, and was lucky enough to have professional boat builders as friends to advise as necessary. The general layout mimics to a degree the Cross 42, which was designed specifically for cruising, i. E. Centre cockpit, aft double cabin, wing berths either side of the saloon. I specifically avoided any crawl through companionways and maintained 6' headroom. The mast step was kept out of the way, and yet was placed at the optimum % forward of the centre of gravity/buoyancy and lateral resistance. I chose ¾ sloop rig like Lock Crowther, but unlike his Spindrift design, I kept the mast further aft and improved sailing ability enormously. What l did use was his wing beam shape and general method of construction, although adapted to modern materials. I also angled the amas 10 degrees to the vertical like he did but l increased the bouyancy considerably to 130%.

The overall look was influenced by Schionnings lovely tumble homes on his catamaran hulls. So Bambu is a bit of a design hybrid but l think l got it right, as she looks good, sails like a witch and is a very comfortable cruising trimaran. All three hulls are made from strip planked Western Red Cedar with GRP both sides. The underwater and impact areas have a minimum of 2 layers of 600gsm double bias fibreglass fabric both side, the rest of the hulls and cabin have one layer both sides. Wing beam penetrations through the hulls are reinforced with 2 layers or tri axial fabric. The 4 main beams are made from 18mm Pacific Maple marine ply and WRC, fully glassed inside and out, with 10mm of 1000gsm uni roving wrapped top and bottom/end to end, giving the beam enormous strength, enough to not only support the full weight of the boat on one beam, but 4 times that by impact. All main bulkheads are 18mm Pacific Maple marine ply and fully glassed, minor bulkheads are 15mm and glassed also PM marine ply. In fact all materials are marine ply, and all fittings are 316 stainless steel.

I have used best quality electronics, plumbing etc throughout. My budget was constrained by practicality, not by extravagance. Epoxy resin was chosen over polyester and vinylester, although much more expensive, it has a working life 10+ times that of the cheaper epoxies that most vessels are made of today, giving Bambu a gauranteed working life of 50 years plus. Many yachts today have either a foam or balsa core and have inferior resins, giving them a short life of 10 years, with osmosis and delamination problems. Balsa is particularly prone to rot if water intrusion occurs, and both foam and balsa have softening issue on impact areas. None of these problems affect WRC. Bambu was built over a 10 year period, so attention to detail was never compromised. In fact this build would out perform most professionally built and production vessels. An exhausting period of selection for both the mast and the sail manufacturers took place and l chose the best as the results bear testimony. Allyacht designed the rig to suit the chainplate locations and mast step and general configuration, and Doyle Sails did the rest. The computer generated main hull shape and amas was generated on a program called 'Hull Form'. The rest of the detailing was done on Autocad.
