Length

25 ft (7.62m)

Location

Woodbridge

This is an extremely well built, home completed, cruising trimaran partly designed by her vendor builder in association with Kelsall.  She has a grp/foam sandwich construction that has proved to be reliable, stiff, light, warm, quiet and very strong. The clever layout has four berths, separate heads compartment & L shaped galley. Her rig has a balanced main and jib boom system to make her a doddle to sail singlehanded. This boat bristles with many innovative ideas, has been lovingly maintained and thus must be viewed with her builder to be truly appreciated.
