    There seems to be a real gap of trimaran plans out there in
    the 40- 50 foot range- I am only finding trailerable tris, or very old Piver type designs,
    or the 54 foot Chris White Hammerhead.....

    Anyone out there know of any bluewater 40-50 foot Trimaran plans?
    (Neel 45 is one of the few production ones, and it is more of a catamaran style.......)

    Sincerely,
    Schoolbus

    Maybe she's 8" too short at LOA 39' 4" (12 m), the Farrier F-39 . . ?

    In WoodenBoat Magazine #265* (Nov./Dec. 2018) was a design concept for a LOA 39' 4" (12 m) wind-solar-electric trimaran motorsailer by Laurie McGowan.



    (the flickering in the above animation, below the bottom in center view, is the lines of the bow centerboard and the mid centerboard and the rudder interfering with each other while being raised and lowered)

    F-39 Farrier is close but a bit short and the retractable amas put it into the trailerable slot, I am really looking for a dedicated bluewater cruiser tri.......
    Something about the WoodenBoat's tri seems a bit off.....cant put my finger on it- a bit like a Popular Mechanic quality of execution.....

    Philippe Briand has designed the Exception 52 Tri, several were built by Techni Yachts Pinta in the 1980's, here's one for sale, don't know if Philippe sells plans for it though, but if meant for single handed self build then such projects are gonna be to big I think.

    Here's a thread about a Roger Simpson 43' Liahona stalled build project, it shows it's important to make a realistic plan how to finish such a project before starting it.

    To see some pics of a completed Liahona, there's a fixer upper for sale*, she's located on Walter Greene's yard in Yarmouth ME.

    (* see post #20 - #25 - #27 in the above linked thread)

    At 60' she's out of range, she's an tarted up for hollywood older version of an ORMA 60...

    Same type, the old ORMA 60 Brossard, she was wrecked in 2009 in Oman, and has been there like pictured for quite a number of years.

    I always thought that the big harpoon in the front would have been super useful.

    Would have added a lot to the marina charges though.

    That's why they've parked Brossard's bow on the boulders in Oman, as they were only charged for the part in the water there . . :rolleyes:

    from Brossard's better days . . .
