Triad Ocean Going Racer/Cruiser Trimaran
Triad is a very fast and robust ocean going cruiser/racer trimaran. She reaches at wind speed, beats upwind at 2/3 wind speed, and tops out at 25 knots. She is very comfortable while sailing at moderate speed (10 – 15 knots), handles chop easily, and accelerates quickly when the wind pipes up. Slab reefing. She is set up for single-handed sailing; all controls lead to the cockpit except for the halyards which are handled by dedicated winches on the mast. Tiller steering makes for direct hands-on control. Auto pilot takes the tedium out of long passages. Well balanced and sea kindly, she tacks reliably and effortlessly through 90 degrees. She has been meticulously maintained.
