Trefoil Marine Launches Wide-body Tri-Air 30

Press Release
Wednesday, October 24, 2012

Trefoil Marine successfully trialed its newest "wide-body" version of its Tri-Air line of high performance craft. Driven by twin 150 hp Suzuki outboards the boat reached speeds of over 40 mph on initial trials.


The configuration shown above uses the smallest console configuration to give almost 250 square feet of deck space. With this huge area, carrying sails or other equipment at speeds of over 50 mph (with 225 hp outboards), moving high-volume equipment or up to eight people is easy and fast. For owners who want more comfort, a larger console with its own head and twin bolster seats, or a 6-person air-conditioned cabin version are available.


"I am very happy with the way the boat performed, "said Trefoil's President Jim Mattingly. "It lived up to our expectations in every way and complements our line of fast tri-hull craft. These trials at Front Street Shipyard in Maine established the Tri-Air 30 as fast, comfortable, and easy to operate."


The Tri-Air hull configuration uses air moving through the wide channels under the hull to create lift and support the hull at higher speeds. With an overall beam of 11' 6" the boat is extremely stable and barely heels when making high speed turns. While the hull configuration remains the same, the console configuration can be changed easily to suit the owner's requirements with three different options.


Option 1 is the one-person console shown above.


Option 2 is a larger console with its own head and two seats forward of the console with twin bolster seats for helmsman and navigator, a canvas T-top, and an extra storage locker.


Option three is 6' 8" wide by 11' 6" long, full headroom cabin with its own enclosed head compartment and the potential to be air-conditioned.
