Standard features

Beautiful 45 foot Trimaran available NOW!!!
Trimaran currently docked at Emeryville Marina (San Francisco Bay Area).

This boat is a 2 time Mexico vet, once in `98 with the Baha HaHa V group for 8 months and once in 2010/11 for 16 months from S.F. down to Zihuatanejo up to Conception bay and beyond w/ ease.
Bay/Ocean/World for your back yard/ playground.

Includes 10 foot Caribe tender (dingy).

Drawing only 4` at the rudder you can leave those annoying tilt boats (mono hulls) behind. Since she sails flat there will be no more spending countless hours putting things away just to go for a day sail, put your drinks down and when the wind hits they will stay right where you left them! Ive been all over the bay/delta/coast with her. Monterey Bay and the Channel Islands being favorite spots.

The perfect fishing platform for serious doers. Able to troll 7 lines w/o tangles. Ive caught many Marlin, Tuna, Halibut, Salmon etc. with her. Abalone and Lobster diving are no exception. A great platform for the charter business if so desired.

Professionally built by my family and updated and maintained by me the last 22 years. I have all the pics of the build. This is not a race boat but a very comfortable/ safe great sailing machine. Top speed of 18.9 knots surfing into Monterey Bay, lots of speeds in the teens.

I just completed a haul out at the Napa Valley Marina in may of this year/ 2018 see pics. I also just finished painting the Head, Galley, Wing decks where bunks are, dash at pilot house and re-finished all the floors in main hull and pilot house, new paint on exterior decks as well. She looks great!

Im currently living in Santa Cruz. I will only show her on the 1st and 3rd weekend of every month until she is sold starting September 1st, no exceptions. You wont find a better built ready to go multi hull for the money anywhere.

Serious inquiries only. please respond by email or text or phone.

Boat is currently in Emeryville CA in the best slip w/ views the marina has to offer. Slip is transferable!
