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...
