Here is a great little trimaran sailing canoe. At fifteen and half feet, it appears to be a fine example of how to use stitch and glue method in order to build an efficient, versatile water craft rather quickly.
Frank Jackson has built a couple unique trimaran sailing canoes for use at Rocky Mountain Safari. These little tris were made to take guests on camp-cruising adventures.

Today we hear from a sailor who has provided some great info about the trimaran canoes from Solway Dory. Solway Dory is a small boat building company in the in the U.K., and sailor Brian Pearson shares a bit about his sailing background and why he really likes their model known as the Shearwater.

Sailor Rex Gilfillan, who hails from New Zealand, shares about his one-of-a-kind Kevlar trimaran sailing canoe in this post. As you’ll see, he has created a boat uniquely suited for the type of coastal adventures he engages in.
What impressed me about this particular craft is its light weight. Combining the toughness of Kevlar with light weight is quite impressive. (I’d love to see a video of how he made this boat, step-by-step :-) (more…)
Here is another great homebuilt trimaran from Spain. More specifically, it’s a trimaran sailing canoe. This speedy canoe with outriggers once again shows what can be done with a little bit of money, ingenuity and sweat equity. (more…)
If you research fast sailing canoes on the web, the name Gary Dierking is going to come up. It’s inevitable.
Because Gary is not only an authority on these types of watercraft, he wrote a popular book that can be found on Amazon and a host of other places on how to build them.
As a matter of fact, I own a copy of Gary’s “Building Outrigger Canoes: Modern Construction Methods for Three Fast, Beautiful Boats.” And it’s a wealth of information.
