Orphie 29 - Pocket-sized electric trimaran for day sailing

Create a notification for "Multihull"

The Orphie 29 has been designed to accommodate 6 to 10 people: the table of 6’7” x 2’8” (200 x 80) cm is in the shade and can accommodate the whole crew while the trampolines will be great for hanging out in the sunshine. Inside, a mini-cabin: this space is dedicated mostly to storage but there’s a small bunk that could be used by a child, and there’s also a toilet. This trimaran is simple, elegant and integrates sustainable and environmentally friendly materials in its plywood epoxy construction. That said, for the sake of keeping it light and rigid, the linking arms are made of carbon.
There will be a full test in a forthcoming issue of Multihulls World.
