Thread: 2-metre trimaran build

    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.
