Thread: 2-metre trimaran build

  1. #1

    Default 2-metre trimaran build

    Hi multihull friends,

    after building many small 65M tris and cats and several mini40 tris this year I decided to start a build for a 2 metre class trimaran as a winter project.
    It will look alike the Banque Populaire V.
    I'm thinking about building in foam, like I did on my Nightmare MKVIII and the RT65 prototypes, or building male plugs and do the shells from them.
    I hope there are multihullers out there who join the build so we can share our thoughts.
    Attached is the first rendering of the planned boat.

    Cheers
    Phanchita

    Good luck with your 65M. Do you build the 65M from scratch or do you use plans to build?

    I pulled plans on the net. I think it was an ARMAGEDDON. However watching the BOR 90 today on the web put up the wing I am now thinking of going back to the NIGHTMARE F48.

    Both designs work well, in the end it is q question of space and time to build. A scratch built 65M like the Armageddon can be done in 2 weeks, a F48 like the Nightmare MKVIII needs about two month time.

    Here is a picture comparing the sizes:




    If you don't have restrictions in space and building time you can join the 2-metre build here, I'm working on the shadows for the floats in the moment.


    If you have never sailed a multihull before it would be wise to build a Ragnarok 65M first to get a feeling for multis. Thr RT65 is a very stable and well sailing design. The plans for the 'Ragnarok' are here.

    Hi Siri, looks like an interesting project and it's certainly nice to see some interest in the larger boats. I look forward to following your build - Winter is really digging in here so short cold days coupled with high work place demands have put my catamaran build essentially on hold.

    One question - I assume you'll look to sell this boat via your website alnog with your mini40 and '65 but isn't shipping for such large mouldings going to be problematic outside of your immediate locality?

    Regards

    Ray

    Hi Ray,
    the 2-metre will be a one off, just my private toy. I have no intention to sell these large boats. It is not much a problem to ship, but shipping this size will only work with air cargo and would cost more than a complete MKVIII hull set including shipping for one hull set to overseas.
    I make the drawings available here and anyone interested in building one can join this building thread.

    Cheers

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2010 for you as well!

    -...- no real progress here -...-

    Time to make you ´nervous´a little bit maybe? -> 2 layers of 160gr. carbon twill + 1 layer of 80gr. glass, then sanded -> 1.4kg shell weight for this 2M Trimaran Mainhull!

    Besides that, some ´size´ comparison between Mini40 class and 2M-Kingsize -...-
