Gotta love that boat. Light weight materials (although heavier than our boats), more of a planning hull, camping on board, below deck storage. And beautiful to boot. Would love to take it for a spin on the waves. Wonder if its faster than the islands. Thanks for sharing the video.

Basically it is a Triak set up for overnight camping and rowing instead of paddling. The designers made the same mistake most trimaran manufacturers make at first blush...they make the amas too small (or overcanvass, whichever makes you feel better). Triak did the same thing as did Hobie with their first AI. It also weighs twice as much as a Triak (Triak is 100 pounds, that thing is 100 kg).

It is pretty, I'll give you that.
