Windrider 10 & Windrider 16 Coming Back Into Production
Windrider is currently running a special promotion as part of their re-introduction of 2 models – the Windrider 10 Trimaran & the Windrider 16 Trimaran. It’s essentially a give-away of the 10-footer. Click here to see the temporary Windrider 10 Sweepstakes page.
After several years, both the 10 and 16 models are coming back. Naturally, they both feature the cockpit seating / foot-pedal steering arrangement. And it’ll be interesting to see how the marketplace is going to respond.
Their contest began on March 1, 2011 and ends at midnight on April 30, 2011.
I’m cheering them on. I think the boats successfully produced and sold by Windrider are simply good promotion for all small tris, in general.
The below is re-printed from the Windrider 10 Trimaran sales page: “Have a blast sailing a WindRider 10 for only $2995! The most fun at the lowest price – plus it’s lightweight, portable, durable and EASY. Foot pedal steering, single handed mainsail control – and NEW THIS YEAR – optional small trampolines for child to ride along …”.
