Great boat for speed and beaching

I sailed an F27 from Sausalito to Tomales Bay and logged an average speed of over 15 knots with a top speed in Drake's Bay of over 18 knots. The boat handled extremely well and surfed over 8 foot seas with ease. You're gonna get wet . As is often the case with trimarans, there's not a great deal of room on board, but having the tramps to lounge on after beaching the boat is fantastic. The boat sailed quite well to weather as well. I was warned before making the trip that the speed and agility of the boat may detract from subsequent experiences on my own boat (now a bene 38), he was right, it did (a couple of years later and i'm over it . The boats hold their value well as you may already know if you're pricing them out.

Cheers,

Alan
