NEW - Astus 20.5

Astus Boats is continuing the development of its range of trimarans, which are as much fun to sail as they are practical and easy to use. The latest of these transportable boats is the Astus 20.5, which replaces the 20.2 in the range (120 examples of which have been built). Just like the 16.5, this new Astus was designed by VPLP. It has a well-flared, planing hull for performance and protection from the spray, but the 930-litre floats provide reassuring safety and stability. The floats can of course be retracted, and the Astus 20.5 can be transported on its special trailer. A boat you will be able to see at the next Düsseldorf Boat Show.

This lightweight trimaran - its unladen weight is just 1,400 kg - offers accommodation which can't be imagined when looking at its stocky, sporty silhouette. Two double cabins, a real saloon, heads - perfect weekends aboard are yours ...
