New 15mts Tri by Schionning Designs

Sent by Ben Schionning /

June 22, 2016 - Schionning Designs is excited to announce a brand new performance cruising trimaran design - the Tracer 1500TRi. This addition is designed with distinctive Schionning aesthetic styling, a practical and liveable interior, and she will be competitive against the new era of large performance catamarans.

The 1500TRi, measuring in at 15.00 metres on LOA and having a moderate 10.20 metre beam really is an enormous cruising platform. Large spacious cockpit areas are located on either side of the cabin, with the helm stations positioned wide on the aft beam giving excellent forward visibility, as well as clear sight of sails and telltales. The interior offers luxurious and private cabins - the master Queen cabin located aft can have an en suite, and the second master cabin forward through the galley.

An unusual feature of the 1500TRi is the float area which is usually minimal storage or sail lockers, however this design has created additional accommodation in the form of two single cabins. These berths would be quite exciting while underway! At anchor however they are ideal for guests or crew.

The cockpit sole is half netting and half hard deck giving a comfortable combination keeping spray down but giving good drainage.

A preliminary design portfolio, specifications and 3D CAD views are available on the Schionning Designs website ( with Study Plans coming.
