I saw the Telstar 28 Trimaran at the Annapolis Boat Show this past October and also got to speak with Tony Smith, who designed the boat. While perusing YouTube this past week, I stumbled across these short videos featuring this production model.
Tony has a lot of multihull experience in his background. That certainly must be a factor in the design because it seems there was a lot of thought that went into even “the little things.”
I just learned the Telstar 28 trimaran isn’t in production this year — 2010. Whether it comes back or not may depend on the economy. At the moment, there are a few used boats on the market. You’ve still got to have a bundle of cash to get one though. So if want a beautiful, trailerable trimaran, but don’t want to build your own, then this boat may be an available option.
These videos don’t feature anything spectacular, but the notion of assembling them together in this post seemed worthwhile … when the thought first hit me anyway. And while the last 3 of these are “home-made” productions, there is no doubt the first 3 are commercial. No problem. Sometimes I like watching commercials :-)
