40’ Nigel Irens Trimaran (formerly ‘Star, La Trinité’, ‘Fritzz Fratzz’ and ‘Ti Frisson’) for sale
Fantastic opportunity to acquire an offshore racing multihull without the massive budgets required of her larger cousins. Suitable for any number of offshore racing events and a real thrill to anyone who has the abilities and the nerve to push these craft to their limits. Originally a 40’ demountable offshore racing trimaran loosely based around the then Formula 40 rule. These rare 40’s are the predecessors to the now expanding trans oceanic Multi 50 class. Designed by Nigel Irens, engineered by John Levell, built in Dartington, UK alongside sister ship Mike Birch’s ‘Bagages Superior’.
All Carbon composite construction from female tooling. Build supervision by Irens & Birch.
In present ownership the boat was re-engineered and modified as non-de-mountable configuration to make her more suitable for offshore sailing, the boat is in good overall condition - 2018 survey available by request. All new electronics 2018 with complete, professional rewire by Multimarine UK
