Here is a newcomer to the world of cruising trimarans, which will without a doubt get tongues wagging. Its high-tech construction in infused carbon (for the Raw version) allows it to offer performance worthy of a racer, whilst providing interior comfort. Because the Airplay is being offered in three different versions, all of which can of course be folded and are transportable: the Sport, the Sport + and the Raw 30 versions, which allow up to 6 people to be accommodated aboard. Not bad for a 30-footer designed above all to sail fast and offer its crew real pleasure at the helm...

The Tricat 25 Evolution, which we discovered at the fall boat shows, really is a new boat, and not just a development of the Tricat 25 (as its name could lead you to believe). It offers a new, more functional and warmer interior, as well as new cross beams in carbon, new floats, and a new sail plan which offers increased but more useable power. The Tricat 25 Evolution is stiffer, thanks to its construction using infusion techniques, and the use of a carbon – epoxy sandwich, and is even faster.
