Rapido 60' Trimaran Sailing @Hauraki Gulf







Yesterday we published a 42 foot Trimaran from Grainger, a performance cruiser. Rapido Trimarans / rapidotrimarans.com have gone farther in size with their 60' offering.  Designed by another multihull specialists like Morrelli & Melvin. This boat looks like a dream come true for those waning to cruise and go fast as possibly can be done for such wide internal space and accommodation distribution. Great design by Morrelli & Melvin. Check video above from the Hauraki Gulf with nice drone shots.

Ferdinand van West (former F18 World Champ working with MM) comments on the Rapido 60:  "The second boat got launched in NZ, I  sailed #01 in the Med the other day and we were doing 14knots upwinds whilst cooking in the spacious kitchen

One of the Rapido 60 Innovative solutions are the discontinuous beams which end in strong autoclaved beam bulkheads, providing a much better walk-through interior layout through the mainhull.

Its a really nice concept. A Cruising boat with lots of space to live but also storage and at the same time you have the performance of an F18".-
