    where i sail there is a mast up storage yard full of large trailer sailers. i think the owners get sick of stepping large rigs pretty quick and just leave the boats set up.

    The old C&C Mega 30 was pretty easy to trailer and set up, and also remember that most of the Corsair trimarans up through 31-32 feet are legal and often trailed all over the US. Fast is fun!

    Think a parking space in the storage yard is cheaper than a berth in the marina, and they still have the option to take it away for a long holiday trip elsewhere.

    The answer is obviously not straight forward. What one hopes to get out of the boat and where one expects to trailer the boat make a difference, so does money. Local regulations may also include the ability to apply for over-size transport exceptions. If those are not difficult to get, perhaps a 15 meter boat is as easy as a 6 meter boat.

    What do you want out of your trailersailer?
