This trimaran is the perfect prepper's, unsinkable, escape vehicle!! It is perfect for 1-2 people who want the freedom to get away and see new lands while living aboard and enjoying the benefits of traveling using wind-powder. This boat offers level sailing and the ability to go places where no other boat can go. And, at the same time, it offers the speed to out run storms when needed.
It is a Marples 35' Constant Camber CC35-A with a 22' beam, aft cockpit and full decks. The hulls are made from cold-molded mahogany and the decks and bulkheads are made from marine grade plywood. Most of the exterior has been fiberglassed, taped and sanded. And, most of the interior has been epoxied and sanded. The rudder, tiller, centerboard and mast step have also been completed. And, two, vintage, bronze windows are included.
(The new owner will need to put in the companionway hatch, deck hatches and windows. The seams under the acas need to be taped and the whole boat needs to be painted. )
The interior has been roughed in and includes a galley, berth, dressing area, bathroom and storage area. The galley has two counters and a setee. The berth has a full-size bed over the 55 gallon water tank and a counter on the opposite side. The dressing area has a counter. The bathroom has a porcelain, manual, marine-potty with bronze fittings and a 25-gallon, black water tank. (The interior flooring, setee, ceiling, counter tops, cabinets, etc., will need to be completed.)
The boat includes a 45' custom-built, wing mast, mast head, mast tiller and boom. The rigging is a modified cutter rig. The mast and boom are made from cold-molded mahogany, fiberglass and epoxy. They are constructed like an airplane wing with ribs, stringers and a main spar. The tear shaped design is aerodynamically shaped and rotates to create lift. It has three conduits that hold the halyards and electrical wires. It has also been filled with foam to help it float. The mast sits on a rotating base. The aluminum mast head has a fiberglass, aerodynamic cover and houses the VHF antenna. Three, new, white, 9.3 oz. sails are also included. The main has a high roach and three battened reefs. There is also a lapper and a staysail.
The boat comes with three anchors: a Simpson, a Fortress and a Danforth. The designer recommends a 7-25 hp engine (not included). It was built on a trailer and can be easily towed to the dock. It is near an Englund Marine and other marine shops. It is also near the Charleston Marina, the Bandon Marina, The Coos Bay City Docks and the Winchester Bay Marina. (Most rates are available on line.)
The owner/builder is a retired military and civilian aircraft mechanic, electrician and electronics tech. with experience in aerodynamic shapes and spar construction. He is also an experienced wood worker and has some experience in rigging. He is available to give advise as needed.
