Do You Dream of Owning/Sailing
One of These Small Trimarans ...
Or Simply Want to Know More?

"Sailboats Designed Especially for Those of Us Addicted to Speed on the Water"

Greetings Joe,
Well done. Lots of good information in this book, and I found the book unique in subject matter and information style.  The subject of small trimarans comes up often but it seems this style of boats hasn't ever quite come into its own.  This book goes a long way in possibly adding some momentum toward that goal.  I especially like the variety of people interviewed, with thoughts and stories from these people that I had not seen in print before.”

-- Lew Enns, Owner and builder of BlueMoon (Homebuilders rounded hull Tremolino – Dick Newick designer)

     In order to dig this deep to learn more about each of these particular sailboats you’d have to get a hold of each of these small tri experts … and spend many hours asking them many questions about their boats.  Or …you can simply own your own copy of Small Trimarans: An Introduction, because all the work has been done for you.

     *** Please note:  If you're looking for a lot of "technical information," or something that reads like a white paper, then this isn't the book for you.

      This book is a light, breezy and fun read … like something you’d enjoy while soaking in the sun while laying on the trampoline of your favorite trimaran.  And few well-known small tris out there -- including the F-22 and Corsair Sprint 750 -- aren’t included in this book either … because so much great material has already been published about them.

     So this book isn’t an exhaustive reference encyclopedia … not yet anyway :-)   But aside from these boats, and a few others mentioned in the book’s Introduction, you’ll find many (if not most) of the small trimaran designs currently available throughout the English-speaking world.  (There are some great European models I hope to explore in the future).

     On the other hand …

     If you could easily trailer one of these super-fast, fun daysailers or camp-cruisers to a beautiful new sailing venue then which model would best suite your needs?  Some people are going to discover the sailboat they've always wanted inside these pages.  Now, it’s time to pick out your new "favorite" small tri! ...

     Here are a few kind words from small tri enthusiasts who’ve already read Small Trimarans: An Introduction

At easy to read book that sets out the small trimaran landscape in terms of boats, players, pitfalls and benefits.  It has energized me into taking action and doing something to get on the water in one in 2009.  Look Out London - I'm gonna give some of you smug monohull sailers a shock!”
-- Mark Harrison, UK

"With this book, Joe has put together some fascinating reading about many of the small trimarans now out there and also provided a unique insight into their designers through his very personal interview approach.   Well done Joe!"
-- Mike Waters NA,

Joe has done small trimaran fans a huge favor by organizing in one place all of the best small trimarans available on our blue planet.  Moreover, he interviewed designers and builders of yesterday and todays most successful trimarans making it easier for the home   builder to get the job done and get out on the water.  Thanks Joe!”

"As a current owner of a Windrider 17, and ex-owner of a Windrider 16, I found the Windrider section most enjoyable.  The descriptions and implied uses of the boats were quite accurate and the historical aspect of the company was insightful.  Great job!"
