The Mithral Marine Tribrid RD 24 'Bigkanu' is unlike any other boat, designed to be super inexpensive to run and maintain, with tiny fuel use, built with a robust Australian/Kiwi/Indonesian engineered, all alloy hull and cabin.

Her Lateen rig and efficient 110hp Yanmar engine give her an incredible range of 2000 nautical miles at very low cost. The rig is easy to handle, she self tacks and cruises at 10 knots with stability and ease whilst fully loaded.
Accommodation comprises 12 guest bunks and 4 crew bunks with a full commercial kitchen
We now welcome all serious enquiries and viewing requests.
BigKanu is a Lateen rigged motor-sailor with rig suspended in an A frame for powerful sail boost power. She is designed to make long distance headway as a motor sailor with small fuel use. She is robust and stable due to her alloy build and low center of gravity. Beaching is possible even on rocky ground as its built tough underneath for this very purpose.
Using her own truck wheel trolleys she can be chain blocked up the beach for maintenance to avoid the cost of slipping a boat with a 12m beam.
110hp Yanmar giving 10-11 knots with low fuel use. Now about 1600 hours use (July 2019). Cruising speed under engine 8 knots
1500 litre water, with roof drain refill.

As her owner I designed the boat and it was built by New, Zealand builders called Mithral Marine in Surabaya.
The Lateen motor/sailing mast is low, in height to reduce the overturning motion. The yacht has, a gross charter income of between $150, 000 to $200, 000 USD for all those interested in running a business while living the dream!?.
