Krysalid 42

Some years ago a French shipyard had tried to produce a cruising trimaran that I found very interesting, a 42ft that looked like a smaller Multi 50 and that had the advantage of pulling their arms up, allowing it to pay a normal place in a marina. When the first boat was in production I talked to them to see if the boat could fit in my budget...but no way. Trimarans are just too expensive for me. And It looks not only for me because after making 2 or three boats they went out of business.

I don't think that they had fitted any with the originally intended cruising interior. They were used as race boats.

About two years after I talked with them I saw the first boat in and took some pictures:





The Shipyard was Auriga and the boat was called Krysalid 42. Some movies:

Krysalid 42' by Auriga Yacht from Loic Darras on Vimeo.



On this one we can see the boat winning over a Carbon Corsair 37.


P6190049 por vgludot

For somebody with the money for it, there is one for sale for about half the price it costed. It has almost no interior but that can be arranged and probably the price will also be lowered.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Excellent, PCP.

I've attached a picture of the interior of the Paradox when it's not messy.

Also, if you scroll to about the five minute mark in the video in this link (it's not YT, so can't link direct) you can see some more of it:

Deux catas, un tri, trois programmes...

Well, before he had invented it there where already plenty boats called skiff, unless he had invented it before the year 1000


Skiffs were used as racing boats on the last century and the one before that. I guess you are not talking about these boats?







Or maybe you are. What Skiff was created by Archilbald W. Skiff and when?

Re: Interesting Sailboats

I could be wrong, but I think the Archibald Skiff inventing it was a joke.

I love the dinghy garage

I agree. Somewhere he says that they have made the interior more cruising friendly or words to that effect. I'm thinking light too. Did you notice the round escape hatch in the topside? I love that.

Hehe, me too

Although if I had the money for something like that, I'd have a (carbon) open water rowing boat in one of the amas. Much more to my liking

The Mayan, a Alden 1942 59ft centerboarder schooner:



Now you should be thinking what has this beautiful song has to do with it. Well, it was written about this boat by its owner and long time owner and certainly inspired by it. I am talking about David Crosby.



It is a shame he has to part with it but having had an old wooden boat I can imagine the maintenance costs

Beautiful boat anyway with a great interior. I hope someone with good taste will take good care of her.
