This listing just came in from a client of ours who owned a Dragonfly tri..but wanted more speed and excitement. He owned the spectacular MULTI 23 only for a very short time as he has purchased a cruising cat for his family.
This is a great opportunity to get into a VPLP designed, high quality sailing machine at a great discount.
