Custom Sailbird

The 18' Sailbird trimarans were built in Largo Fl in the mid '70's. These are folding, trailerable boats with a swing centerboard and swing up rudder. Perfect for shallow water sailing. This trimaran has been highly modified from the standard boat in 2012. It has been extended from 12' to 14' beam for more stability and speed. Carbon fiber bow sprit for drifter. Mylar racing main and roller furling jib build by Banks Sails in Tampa, Fl. All sails are just 1 year old. New standing and running rigging. Carbon fiber tiller extension.

The boat folds for trailering

These are fast fun trimarans. In light winds she moves at 4-5 knots with almost no effort. Big Red has been clocked at 11 knots sailing flat and fast. No tipping or leaning like mono hulls or catamarans!
