Here is a video update for the Sardine Run 19 trimaran. It comes to us from Allel Behidj of the Sardine Run boatyard in France.
We first featured this boat prior to the first one being built. And the Sardine 19 concept is now reality.
This sailboat, made with modern composite materials, looks terrific … especially with those inverted bows.
Even at just 19′ LOA, its tramps provide lots of room for sailors. You can find all of the specs for this boat on Sardine’s webpage here.
Allel, in an email to me, wrote the following:
The boat is very balanced and powerful enough. With her inverted bows she smoothly passes through the waves, it is a pleasure to sail with.
The owner of the boat will discover the boat during this summer. This is the prototype so I think some things will change.
The next step is to make the plans available for amateur boatbuilders ( autumn ) and probably build a mold for a composite construction during the next year ( and off course using always the basalt fiber ). If someone wants a Sardine 19 then I am the person to contact.
