The Good News - The TriFoiler is the most unusual of Hobie Cat's boats. Designed by Greg Ketterman, this trimaran has two sails, one on each ama, and hydrofoils that lift the hulls out of the water at speed. It lifts on the foils at wind speeds between 10 and 11 mph (18 km/h) and quickly accelerates to twice that speed in seconds. On its foils, it sails at approximately twice wind speed and can pull 2+ g's in turns. The Trifoiler is a production variant of the A class world sailing record holder Longshot, also designed and built by Ketterman.

The Bad News - needs a lot of repair work to fibeglass hulls as well as the rigging.Everything is there to make it fly just needs someone to do it.It is on a galv trailer which also needs some work.
