With this boat you can have it all: a very seaworthy, strong and fast live aboard and a competitive racer. With her powerful rig, light weight, excellent hull shape and balanced helm, she is a joy to sail. She is also a comfortable live aboard, due to her stability, interior space, comfortable cockpit and huge deck/trampoline area. Her sleek lines and gracious movements under sail make her a real head turner. She crossed many oceans and is now on the market for the next person to enjoy.
Some key features: strong and seaworthy design with comfortable and safe sea behaviour, professionally built by a renowned Dutch yard (owners finished her) in epoxy sandwich construction, many watertight bulkheads in all hulls, carbon mast and boom, top quality equipment, meticulously maintained and ready to go anywhere. Enjoy the beautiful cruising grounds of New Zealand and the South Pacific or sail her to whatever destination you imagine; or choose for delivery to your favourite cruising area (by current owners, dependent on time schedule).

Accommodation: More than one would expect judging her sleek lines. Standing headroom in living area, L shaped settee with table, separate large chart table, large galley, sleeps 6 (2 double, 2 single), heater, fridge, toilet and lots of storage.

Cockpit: Tiller steering with three possible steering positions (sheltered under dodger or with tiller extension on cockpit coaming or with a long extension on aft beam), 2 seats under dodger, ergonomically formed cockpit seats with separate gas locker and lots of storage. All lines lead back to the cockpit, but all are easily stored out of the way, so no spaghetti. Behind the aft beam there are 3 lockers for petrol, gas bottles, swimming ladder, etc. The outboard slides on rails forward, so while sailing it is out of the salt spray and does not protrude behind the transom.

Floats: Many watertight compartments and lots of storage (fenders, lines, emergency rudder, emergency tiller, etc. )

Hull shape: The main hull is very slim at the waterline, reducing drag. Bow section is a ´rounded V shape´, to minimise slamming in waves. Aft section is quite flat to improve surfing. Rocker is as minimal as possible to reduce drag in the aft section. The floats are narrow for minimal drag and V-shaped to reduce slamming in waves and have maximum waterline length while sailing. Because the centre of buoyancy of the floats is much more to the front than that of the main hull, she does not dig in her bows and is therefore very safe to sail. Buoyancy of each float is approx. 120% of the total weight. With these hull shapes she is a very safe boat to sail, comfortable at sea and fast.

This trimaran has been fitted out with simplicity and robustness in mind; owners wanted to enjoy paradise instead of doing boat repairs there or waiting for parts that have to be shipped in:
Outboard instead of inboard (with a vessel like this you only need engine power for manoeuvring in marinas or crowded or tight anchorages).
Manual anchor winch (no electrical connections in a salty environment).
Oversized manual winches instead of electrical ones.
Stand-alone navigation systems, but the B&G system, Raymarine autopilot, GPS, and AIS can be connected via a multiplexer (and the data can be sent by wifi to for instance a laptop).
Genoa on hanks with a vertical reef: robust system, maintains excellent profile when reefed, less weight and when not in use it does not interfere with staysail.
Only one central intake for water and one outlet below the waterline (both through hulls are composite and smooth on the outside).

General info: Professionally built by Rhebergen Multihull Yachts, Amsterdam Netherlands (finished and fitted out by owner) in composite epoxy-glassfibre construction: core is Divinycell foam, apart from underwater area of main hull which is end grain balsa.
Carbon mast, boom and bowsprit.
