Description

This trimaran is exceptional in several ways. Only 3 examples built by the Brazilian master Carlos Ribeiro in Cabo Frio, but above all the constructive principle: Lined in strip planking of red cedar on carbon frames (int/ext epoxy glass facings)! A tour de force for the time! And overpriced manufacturing! The price was forgotten, the quality remained! Hervé Cléris wanted a trimaran that was easy to handle but very efficient for the OSTAR 1988 (POL SEITE 3rd in Class 4), this was the case... but an error in interpreting the samples from the bulkhead will cause worrying cracking noises which will not allow to the various owners to take full advantage of the boat (this is undoubtedly what will have paradoxically protected this sports coupe with significant potential.
The ex RACA, PHARMILTALIA will then be used as a sports sailing school departing from Deauville before being repatriated to the Mediterranean. The analysis of the structural weakness carried out (only in the central part of the main partition, curiously), the repair was simple (it was enough to put back the sampling recommended by the designer after scarfs and applications of multidirectional glass/epoxy fabrics) and the robust boat as it always should have been!). A Newick trimaran is as much about naval architecture as it is about aviation... these multihulls are extremely strong if they respect the "magician's" recommendations. We had the opportunity to test this boat in tough conditions at all speeds, but the long leg at an average of 15 knots upwind (not very rough seas) was a revelation. The "Half Moon" floats are superb and offer a magnificent solution to variable geometry (lots of finesse in light airs, progressive volume build-up depending on the support).
The boat is now in perfect condition available in the south of France.
