This small trimaran is being constructed from mostly old parts and pieces of this, that and the other thing :-) Sailor Hans Schipper sent me a the following photos of the boat he is building.
Seriously, it’s amazing what human ingenuity can achieve in this sense. Hans is building his “new” trimaran from “old” parts. It looks pretty neat too. (more…)
I TRI’D is a self-designed 18-foot DIY trimaran by sailor Mick Milne. He built this sailboat himself after researching lots of small tris and then using using “HULLS” software to produce dimensions for the panels.
The building technique is “stitch and glue” plywood — with the main hull oversheathed with two layers of fiberglass and epoxy. And the outriggers slide in on aluminum beams to allow trailering . It looks pretty good. (more…)
One reader sent me a Austrian website featuring a unique, home-built sailboat designated the “Soling Trimaran.” This small tri is a great example of what somebody can do with a dream, lots of drive and a little ingenuity.

Now here is a homemade trimaran project that is bound to make a few of small tri lovers smile :-) And why shouldn’t it? It displays all of the creative ingenuity and fortitude that would be required to build just about any boat. (more…)
