Just in, a fine 2010 example of the Astus 16.1 trailerable trimaran.
Requiring no ballast, these little Astus trimarans are easy to tow and move around by hand on their trailer. Yet their floats, on telescopic arms, which can be extended in minutes, provide a wide stable platform on the water, providing high speeds with a low angle of heel to suit even the most timid of crew members. Rigging is easy - the rotating wing mast can be raised single handed and there is no complicated boom to fit. Being faster than equivalent monohull cruisers the Astus 16.1 boasts a wider range, whether single handed or with the whole family on board. The lockable forward cuddy is cavernous, enabling not only sail and equipment storage, but even substantial amounts of kit for overnight camping stays and longer distance cruising. Floating in only 25cm of water these boats make creek crawling a real pleasure and thanks to the shallow keels and swing rudder they will happily take the ground.
Very lightly used, this example of the Astus 16.1 has proved itself in the roughest of conditions, crossing the 10nm of the Firth of Forth between North Berwick and Elie in an hour, and winning the Elie to North Berwick handicap. It has an extensive inventory, much of it recently renewed including:
Brand new standing and running rigging.
A brand new Hyde Sails fully battened, boomless main with 2 reefing points in sailbag
A brand new Hyde Sails jib in sailbag
An 'as new' gennaker with Ronstan furler in sailbag
