Five Innovative Trimaran Yacht Concepts

    AUGUST 26, 2014

    In recent years, some of the most creative minds in yacht design have turned their attention to trimarans.

The resulting futuristic three-hulled designs—some of which may never actually make it to production—certainly spark the imagination.
