PuddleCat Trimaran 12′

View Cart

The PC Trimaran 12 footer was built to be another very good go sailing anytime you have a spare hour boat. There is no setup except for installing the mast which takes around 30 seconds. Because it is 8.5 wide it is road legal as it is. The amas may be removed if you need to with only 4 bolts total. Also because of its width it has a wider beam and is more stable in rough conditions and because you have one ama out of the water and the ama in the water has less wetted area it is somewhat faster. Plans are currently not available and will not be offered until new prototype built and retested with improvements mods.

Specifications-

Length 11′ 9″, Width 8’6″ with amas, width of hull 26″, Weight of hull 82 lbs., total weight 122 lbs. Mast height 15′, Sail area 58 sq. ft. rolling reefing. Other usable sail setups would be sunfish, laser or homemade poly tarp.  I have a hiking board that slides on the aka tubes so you can sit there and hike out to one side. Or you can have one on each side and fit 2 people in the boat with ease. I also have a removable board that I fit across the center hull so that you can sit high and paddle the boat in no wind conditions or getting around in congested launch areas. Any flat surfaced trailer will work with this boat because it is flat bottomed and has no keels or boards.
