Welcome to Trimaran Cool

Welcome to the first post here at Trimaran Cool.

Ever since I was about 5 years old, I've been fascinated by these yachts with 3 hulls. I guess its mostly the speed, but there is also a curious grace in seeing three bows sailing together in such tight formation. So this blog will reflect my fascination with trimarans - and hopefully what I find and pass on will fascinate you too.

Trimarans range all the way from hundred-foot carbon-fibre record breakers to open canoes with beams and floats (also known as vakas and akas) added for stability. As long as its cool, it will feature here. That's trimaran cool!
