The Seller has just completed carbon ama daggerboards and trunks for Amilee to ensure that Amilee can both point high and be beached on her mini-keel as originally intended. The Seller has also just ordered new squaretop main with lazy bag and genoa. This boat will shortly be complete and ready to sail.

This is a rare opportunity for a trimaran sailor. You’ve found a custom-built Kurt Hughes designed trimaran (extended to 46′ for additional cruising comfort) that has never been sailed. This trimaran has been carefully constructed from epoxy, foam, cedar strip, and carbon fiber over the course of a 5-year full-time build.

She has an extremely well documented build history. You can view every stage of her construction. She has a Kurt Hughes designed rotating carbon fiber wing mast and integral carbon fiber chainplates. The rig is already in place and supported by Dyneema standing rigging. All of her running rigging and supporting deck hardware is bedded in place. The interior has been fitted out with all cabinetry, custom upholstery, 2 queen cabins, a separate head and shower with beautiful fixtures and surfaces. She’s been plumbed and wired. Her systems are ready-to-go – twin helms, outboard hiking seats, hardtop bimini, 500 watts of solar, 2 generators, ground tackle, electric windlass, shore power, charger. . . There is even a rough-in for a watermaker should you choose to add one.

The outboards hang in their nacelles ready to propel her off the dock. The dinghy is even waiting on the tramps. Unfortunately this trimaran has been poised in suspended animation since her launch in 2019. Health forces sale. Won’t you introduce her to the world? She is in the Canadian Gulf Islands at the foot of the Inside Passage upwind and up current of the world’s best cruising. Bring your cruising dreams to life now. Email Matthew today for complete details and start cruising with speed, comfort, and style aboard a beautiful custom (and essentially new) trimaran.
