This F-25C has just undergone an extensive and expensive refit including all new racing sails, new nets, synthetic rigging and a full repaint. Always dry sailed, the last few years on Lake Michigan. In excellent condition and ready to go.
Background The F-25C is actually 26'6" long overall, and is constructed of carbon fiber/epoxy/balsa sandwich. Forty five were built in the '90's--all hulls were hand laid-up, vacuum-bagged and autoclave-cured for maximum strength with minimum weight (less than 2000 lbs). Hulls were then sold to individual owners who either finished the boats themselves (ie painting, installing deck hardware) or had their boats professionally finished as was this example.The F-25C is a very fast vessel with light, responsive steering. Acceleration is amazing, and an F-25C will outsail most other trimarans, including many that are much larger and a lot more expensive. Capable of speeds in excess of 25 knots under sail. Can be easily raced with a crew of 3, or cruised with 1-2.
