Hartley-Boats’ Lively 28 Trimaran Building Update
The Lively 28 trimaran, from HartleyBoats, is an older model that is looking absolutely stunning while being built “brand new.” In just a year, Cape Town, South African sailor/trimaran enthusiast Kevin G. shows us all that a guy with a dream, proven boatbuilding plans and a smart, targeted budget can still achieve great things.
Just look at what he has accomplished! Kevin is now ready to make the crossbeams and is hoping the South African winter, which is beginning now, won’t slow up the building progress too much.
Up to this point, his brand new (and large, for a “small” trimaran) 28-foot camp-cruiser has cost him a little more out-of-pocket than a brand new, factory-ordered, commercial 17-foot, 2 person Windrider.
Wow! And most of the building process is completed. I don’t know about anyone else, but as a British fellow once said to me, “I’m absolutely gobsmacked.”

Kudos to you Kevin. Thanks for sharing these photos with us (below :-)
