    I'm interested in building a list of small trailerable tris that plans are available for and that suit the amateur builder. Folding is a must, around the 26' mark (24 to 28?) is probably ideal, economical build is always good, good looking (you have to love your boat!) is nice, good interior space but not a dog for it, good pace.... again no dogs. I'm more interested in cataloguing a list here than arguing each individual boats merits, links to tests, designers, pictures etc both for myself any anyone who is like minded to explore.

    So what do you like?

    Zed,
    Check out http://smalltrimarans.com/blog/
    The Small Tri book sold there is a great read IMO, although most of the boats are a bit smaller than 26'.

    There is only one Trinado. A chapter about it in the afore-mentioned book.

    Yeah, thks, I tripped over that site before looking for your beast. Scant mention of your little machine, I was hoping to find more about that one but she looks to be a rare breed. Its got me wondering how many more there are like her that I have never seen before.

    Demountable is also acceptable to me.

    Yup... link away! I mean this to be a resource thread for anyone who is interest in a tri around that size, so its all fair game.

    Cheers

    Having been along the same lines for many a dreaming year you will nearly all ways end back at the Farrier site,so many reasons to not build a F boat that far outway the disadvantages.

    Tritum dose look cool and Eric Larouges Pulsar range http://www.lerouge-yachts.com/tri_8.htm are pretty tasty.

    There was also a new boat the Grainger ST7 but it needs about 1 metre more in length of cabin space to be an over nighter as well.:)
