Road Rash 7.5m Plywood Trimaran
Love the Open 60 trimaran but can't afford the price tag? Love the Seacart 30 but can't afford it? At last, here is an affordable option! This boat is designed for racing bigger boats over the line. It is about having a great day racing and just pure fun sailing. If hull flying on a budget is your thing, then this is your weapon.
It is designed to be home built from CNC cut panels which can be pre-cut by us or by your local cabinet shop. All construction is in 6mm Gaboon plywood to make a strong, stiff boat at a reasonable weight (less than 500kg for the platform).
The hulls are shaped to GO FAST! There is room to sleep all 3 crew below deck - but it is going to snug inside. Going below is through an off-the-shelf hatch, making sealing easy.
The platform has rudders on each outer hull allowing for full control when flying the main hull. So yes, be aware that this boat will go ass up if you want it to. There is no cockpit as such, just a flat aft deck making getting around the boat very easy.
The beams are folding for ease of rigging on the trailer.
Plans include .dxf files of all panels for CNC cutting. Laser cut templates for foils. Plus all the detailed drawings under the sun to get the job done.
