The new foiling TF10 trimaran

by Sven Erik Janssen 26 Jan 2019 12:53 PST

This trimaran brings triple fun. The foiling TF10 trimaran is the translation of Morelli & Melvins and DNA's experience in competition multihulls into the broader category of dual-purpose sports-racing boats; boats that are fun to sail with friends AND to compete in.

The TF10 is a thoroughbred, yet thoroughly 'sailable' speed machine and strict One Design. When you know your way around the racecourse in monohulls, then your skillset will allow to race the TF10 too; it is merely a different application of sailing skills. It is high performance boat in the tradition of the most successful One Design boats of years past.

The TF10 can entertain and delight. It very much delivers on the thrill of sailing; after the foiling revolution there is now evolution, and the TF10 is the first boat designed from scratch to introduce lessons learned; making foiling safer and more accessible for the everyday sailor.

Easily transport the TF10 retract the amas and trailer or ship your boat. The TF10 has been built with ease of competition in mind. You can arrive in Key West on your own trailer, or ship to Europe on a standard 40' flat rack.

Open up new inland weekend cruising destinations with the ease of a boat ramp. No need to line up for a hoist, pay for a travel lift or register for a highway permit. The TF10 can be pulled with a standard HD pickup truck and can be launched from a ramp. The TF10 is simple to transport and set up, and can be stored indoors.
