Sailor Tony Basso (from Half Moon Bay, CA) alerted me to the following piece of small tri news. The Discovery 20 trimaran, a Chris White design from the 80’s is undergoing an update.
The design aspect of things is already completed. There were some tweaks Chris thought would make the boat a little better, including lengthening the center hull to 21 feet. The real news is that it’s going to be offered as both a production boat (for anyone that wants one completely made for them) AND a kit (for someone who wants to complete the build themselves). (more…)
I was contacted a few days ago by Alain, who has owned and sailed a Discovery 20 trimaran since 2009. He name of this boat is “TRI AGAIN.”
Alain is selling this boat because he has just bought a Corsair. But he has thoroughly enjoyed it while he has owned her. He shares a little bit more about it just below. (more…)
Imagine a fast, small trimaran that enables you to not only move out to windward on a trampoline when it starts to fly, but also offers something many small trimarans do not … a “very comfortable” seating situation for up to 4 adults.
As a matter of fact, the small trimaran I’m referring to allowed its designer to take his 75-year-old mother in law out for a comfortable ride in this day cruiser. And would you be surprised if I said a renowned trimaran (and catamaran) yacht maker created this sailboat?
