They are generally unpopular due to perceptions about lack of structural integrity. I can't comment on the accuracy of those perceptions, except to say that I read "A Voyage for Madmen" and every trimaran entered in the 1968 Golden Globe broke up and sank. Suhaili kept going. What's the nearest thing to Suhaili you can buy for a reasonable price? A Westsail 32.
